Global E-Government, 2005

In this report, I present the fifth annual update on global
e-government. Using a detailed analysis of 1,797 government websites in
198 different nations undertaken during Summer, 2005, I chart the
variations that exist across regions and countries, and discuss the
pace at which e-government is unfolding around the world. In
looking at electronic government from 2001 to 2005, I find that
progress is being made, albeit at an incremental pace. Governments are
showing steady progress on several important dimensions, but not major
leaps forward. On several key indicators, e-government performance is
edging up. However, movement forward has not been more extensive in
some areas because budget, bureaucratic, and institutional forces have
limited the extent to which the public sector has incorporated
technology into their mission.
Among the significant findings of the research are:
1) 19 percent of government websites offer services that are fully executable online.
2) 89 percent of websites this year provide access to publications and 53 percent have links to databases.
3) 18 percent (up from 14 percent in 2004) show privacy policies, while
10 percent have security policies (up from 8 percent in 2004).
19 percent of government websites have some form of disability access,
meaning access for persons with disabilities, up from 14 percent in
5) Countries vary enormously in their overall e-government
performance based on our analysis. The most highly ranked nations
include Taiwan, Singapore, United States, Hong Kong, China, Canada,
Germany, Australia, and Ireland.
6) There are major differences in
e-government performance based on region of the world. In general,
countries in North America score the highest, followed by Asia, Western
Europe, Pacific Ocean Islands, Middle East, Eastern Europe, South
America, Russia and Central Asia, Central America, and Africa.
