The survey this year covered more countries, and added new categories that characterize an ideal e-Government. A total of 32 countries (economies) were surveyed in this project. Areas surveyed in the e-Government of each country included network preparedness, required interface functioning applications, management optimization, homepage situation, and the introduction of chief information officers (CIO). This year, efforts to promote e-Government by each country were also analyzed.
