WIA Report

2008 Briefing Booklet

The World Information Access 2008 Report presents important trends in the distribution of information and communication technologies around the world.

The 2008 WIA Report explores information access by looking at trends in the blogger arrests worldwide, diversity in the ownership of media assets in the 15 largest media markets in the Muslim world, and the ideological diversity of political content online in 74 countries with large Muslim populations.

We sometimes work with data that has been collected by international agencies, but more often our tables and graphics are based on original data collection efforts.
