Mississippi ICF Institute Publishes First Ever Digital Divide Index

1312gallardo_estrella.jpegDr. Roberto Gallardo (pictured right) of the Mississippi State University Extension Intelligent Community Institute has published a 50-state Digital Divide Index using data provided by the FCC.

The DDI is a county-level index score (from 0 to 100) measuring the digital divide. The higher the number, the larger the digital divide. The objective of the DDI is to serve as a descriptive and pragmatic tool for policymakers, community leaders, and residents. The DDI consists of two components: infrastructure/adoption and socioeconomic characteristics.

The index is available on the Mississippi Institute's website at: http://ici.msucares.com/ddi.
