UN Global E-government Readiness Report 2005 (PDF): “The UN Global E-government Survey 2005 presents a comparative ranking of the countries of the world according to two primary indicators: i) the state of e-government readiness; and ii) the extent of e-participation. Constructing a model for the measurement of digitized services, the Survey assesses the 191 member states of the UN according to a quantitative composite index of e-government readiness based on website assessment; telecommunication infrastructure and human resource endowment….According to the global e-government readiness rankings in 2005, the United States is the world leader followed by Denmark, Sweden, and the United Kingdom in that order.
