The third annual global ranking of e-government initiatives by Accenture LLP of Chicago leaves the top three nations unchanged from last year: Canada, Singapore and then the United States.
But the United States had the most services online, 115 out of a total 117, the Accenture study said. The Office of Management and Budget's 24 marquee projects have refreshed the information superhighway vision of the early 1990s, it said.
The analysts studied 23 national governments' electronic services in the areas of defense, education, human services, justice and public safety, postal services, procurement, regulation, revenue and transportation.
They rated maturity at three levels: informational, interactive and transactional.
