E-Government Surveys

Preparatory Process of the United Nations E-Government Survey 2016


Since 2003, the Division for Public Administration and Development Management (DPADM) has been publishing the United Nations E-Government Survey to share knowledge about global e-government trends and issues, and innovative practices as well as challenges and opportunities for e-government development. The biennial Survey is the only report in the world that assesses the e-government development status of all 193 United Nations Member States. It serves as a tool for decision-makers to identify their areas of strengths and challenges in e-government and to guide e-government policies and strategies. The Survey is being used as an impartial reference by policy-makers, government officials, United Nations agencies and other global and regional organizations to benchmark e-government development in all regions and guide policy formulation and implementation. The Survey, which is intended for government officials, academics, intergovernmental institutions, civil society organizations, the private sector and citizens at large, is therefore a valuable capacity-building tool used by UNDESA to support Member States in advancing e-government for sustainable development.

The "UNPACS E-Government Knowledge Base" sub-portal, an interactive e-government open data platform,  allows users to view, sort, and print Survey information, or download entire copies of the eight previous editions of the United Nations E-Government Survey. It also permits to browse and download raw data by country, region, or year, and to compare regions and countries.
