The Azerbaijan Marketing Association has presented on Friday the results of research into IT in Azerbaijan. The results were presented on Friday by Rahim Huseynov, the chairman of the association.

The association conducted a study of reforms implemented in recent years.

Studies have shown that in 2011, 56 percent of Azerbaijan's population has at least one personal computer. On average, there are 22 computers for every 100 people.

The rate of Internet penetration, according to the association, was 68 percent, or double the world average.

As noted at the presentation, according to the World Economic Forum, Azerbaijan's rating has improved by nine points and the country ranked 61 among 142 countries.

The event also provided an overview of the ICT market of the CIS countries over the past five years.

Some 5,868 respondents participated in the social survey on the rate of use of ICT in Azerbaijan, conducted by the Association of Marketing.

"During the survey, we were primarily interested in the use and attitudes to ICT," Huseynov said.

The association believes the results will help the business sector take appropriate steps and build their investment policy.
