Individual computer usage pattern and perception amongst the public sector officials in a least developed country

A descriptive study

Research output: A Conference proceeding or a Chapter in BookConference contribution


While there has been considerable attention given to individual computer use in the developed world, studies on least developed economies, where the circumstances, context and issues are very different, are very limited. Furthermore, the typical characteristics of public sectors in least developed countries are often far different to those in developed countries, and to the private sector anywhere, particularly in the use of information and communication technologies. This paper explores the typical pattern of individual computer usage of the public servants in a least developed country, Bangladesh, with the help of descriptive data from 251 survey respondents. The broad picture emerging from this descriptive study is expected to help in understanding the perception of computers and the pattern of computer use in this special context, which is likely to contribute to strategizing and designing appropriate information systems and approaches.
