This article develops a microeconomic model-based approach to estimation of national information and communications technology expenditure that is helpful when only very short time-series are available. The model specification incorporates parameters for network effects and national e-readiness. Finally, the model allows for observed nonhomotheticity and 'noise' found in sample data, with the latter attributed to country-specific influences.
