A rapid development of ICT usage in Bangladesh has been noticed as a milestone of the introduction of
“Digital World” programme of the honourable Prime Minister in 2009. We see a progressive and
aggressive use of ICT products and services ranging from hardware and software applications. To present
this development, BBS has conducted the Labour Force and Child Labour Survey 2013 with a
comprehensive module on ICT to produce the very first report on “ICT Use and Access by Individuals and
Households in Bangladesh” for the year 2013.
This report would not only provide basic indicators of the ICT situation in households in the country but
also facilitates an assessment and monitoring of the extent to which the Bangladeshi households have
access to ICT and its related facilities.
The findings from the Household ICT Survey portrays an interesting result which shows that the usage of
ICT in both household and individual usage. I hope that this report creates a pivotal information resource
to the stakeholders of the ICT industry, policy makers and researchers to identify ICT gap and develop plan
to bridge gap for further sustainable development of the country.
