AL DWAIRI, Khaldoon  y  HERRERA-SOLANA, Victor. The Information Society in the Arab Countries: an approach to socio-economic indicators' analysis. Investig. bibl [online]. 2007, vol.21, n.43, pp. 185-208. ISSN 0187-358X.

The situation of Information Science in Arab Countries is described, and problems related to the implementation of new information technologies in the region, also considered, as well as the attitude of each one of these countries towards Internet. Socio-economic (population, density, per capita income, literacy) and technological indicators (number of telephone lines, computers, ISPs, servers, users) are presented together with the level of development of each country. These countries are divided into three different economic groups (A,B and C), but results show that such groups are not clearly delineated with respect to technological incorporation in society.

Palabras llave : Information society; Arab World; Internet.
