Abstract—This paper presents a tri-indicator evaluation method for the utilization of Rural Comprehensive Information Service Station (RCISS). We developed the relative index of service (γ) to indicate how many times the RCISS was utilized. We used diversity of service (δ) to measure the variety of service and volatility of service (υ) to show the fluctuation of service. The tri-indicator evaluation method is tested by the utilization comparison of RCISS in Ningbo, China. The results show that Yinzhou and Fenghua are in the beginning stages of RCISS utilization; Xiangshan is well entrenched in the utilization of RCISS; Ninghai and Zhenhai have individualized plans for developing their RCISS and the other four sub-areas are making steady progress in utilizing the RCISS.

Index Terms—Rural Comprehensive Information Service Stations (RCISS); evaluation indicator; evaluation method; Ningbo
