Factoid: more computers than people in Israel

According to a country ranking of computer ownership published in the 2009 edition of The Economist’s “Pocket World in Figures”, there were 122.1 computers per 100 people in Israel in 2006.

Russia was in the same league as Namibia, with 12 computers per 100 people. The US, Britain and Australia were at 76 per 100 people.

Fascinating data! Thanks Pierre. I wrote a bit about it - trying to compare this to PISA education performance to see if having more computers meant higher PISA academic scores?

Turns out that's not the case.

Thanks again
