  • This study examined the impact of information and communications technology (ICT) on the sociocultural dimensions of the family by comparing ICT use in Korean, Chinese, and American families. This study investigated attitudes to ICT usage in the family context by country and explored how various consumers use ICT in the family context. The study explored how families can be clustered based on usage. ICT device ownership had differences in the use of ICT services including blogs and video chatting accounts. ICT usage in the family was also similar in all three countries in the study, but the depth of use differed. The cluster analysis indicated that users could be classified into four groups, however the proportion in each group differed by country. This study has implications for understanding ICT ownership and use by families in various countries and indicates that sociocultural elements are important in ICT use.

  • The purpose of this research is to investigate the relationship between job creation and ICT usage in service industries. This research is particularly important because job creation is one of the most critical issues for the country. With technology innovation and system integration, manufacturing industries do not create enough employment, therefore, the society relies on service industries for creating job opportunities. Until now, due to limitations, analysis of job creation in service industries through ICT usage has not been investigated in depth. Thus, development of an effective ICT support policy was impossible. In this research, we used seven methods to investigate overall relationship between ICT usage level and job creation. A rule of large numbers has been applied to reach conclusion. Through this research, the government can focus its investment on service industries where job creation rate is the highest. We can expect both reinforcement in competitiveness of our service industry and continuous creation in employment, eventually leading to a virtuous cycle.
