NOTES:

When two countries have the same score, then the country with the higher overall competitiveness index is ranked higher.

Overall infrastructure scores were calculated from the results of a survey: How would you assess general infrastructure (e.g., transport, telephony, and energy) in your country?

1 = extremely underdeveloped

7 = extensive and efficient by international standards
2009–10 weighted average is the score given to each country.

Individual components of infrastructure scores include the following:

Available airline seat kilometers

Scheduled available airline seat kilometers per week originating in country (in millions) | January 2010 and July 2010 average

This variable measures the total passenger-carrying capacity of all scheduled flights, including domestic flights, originating from a country. It is computed by taking the number of seats available on each flight multiplied by the flight distance in kilometers, by summing the result across all scheduled flights in a week during January (winter schedule) and July (summer schedule) 2010, and by taking the average capacity of the two weeks.

Fixed telephone lines

Number of active fixed telephone lines per 100 population | 2009

A fixed telephone line is an active line connecting the subscriber’s terminal equipment to the public switched telephone network (PSTN) and that has a dedicated port in the telephone exchange equipment. Active lines are those that have registered an activity in the past three months.

Mobile telephone subscriptions

Number of mobile cellular telephone subscriptions per 100 population | 2009

This measure refers to the subscriptions to a public mobile telephone service and provides access to the public switched telephone network (PSTN) using cellular technology, including the number of pre-paid SIM cards active during the past three months. This includes both analogue and digital cellular systems and 4G subscriptions, but excludes mobile broadband subscriptions via data cards or USB modems.
