GONZALEZ-ZABALA, Mayda Patricia  y  SANCHEZ-TORRES, Jenny Marcela. Analysis of variables and indicators used to measure the information society. Ingeniare. Rev. chil. ing. [online]. 2012, vol.20, n.3, pp.433-446. ISSN 0718-3305.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-33052012000300017.

The purpose of this paper is to present a characterization of the evaluation systems of Information Society (IS) proposed in the period 1995 to 2010, based on an analysis of their variables and indicators. To obtain the results, a methodology composed of four stages was defined: i) identification of the evaluation systems of IS; ii) selection of the evaluation systems for the analysis; iii) identification and classification of variables and indicators; and iv) generation of reports and analysis of results. The main results show that 37.3% of variables/indicators under study are focused on infrastructure aspects, and, 3.1% are focused on measuring the participation of citizens in the IS. Similarly, it is found out that measuring the progress of the IS considers issues related to the context and the amount of variables / indicators has been extended to measure several areas of society such as: tourism, science, agronomy, etc. Last, this work allows to analyze in detail the aspects that are considered in the measurement of IS, and the number of variables/indicators proposed in each of them.

Palabras clave : Indicators; measurement; measurement systems; information society; variables.
