Abstract

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