Global Launch of the UN E-Government Survey 2022

The UN E-Government Survey 2022 will be launched on 28 September 2022. The theme of the 12th edition of the Survey is “The Future of Digital Government”. The Survey looks at how digital government can facilitate integrated policies and services across the 193 United Nations Member States. It supports countries’ efforts to provide effective, accountable and inclusive digital services to all and to bridge the digital divide and leave no one behind. The Survey includes digital government ranking of the 193 UN Member States. The 2022 Survey also marks the first study to incorporate an assessment of e-government in the most populous city in each of UN Member State. Following the global launch, webinars and regional information sessions will be held to share further insights and key findings at the global, regional and local levels. In addition to the English edition, the Survey will also be made available later on in Arabic, Chinese, French, Russian and Spanish. The Survey launch on 28 September at 12.30 pm EDT will be streamed live via UN Web TV. More information on the Survey is available here.

About the Survey
Since its inception in 2001 by the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs, the
Survey has become an indispensable ranking, mapping and measuring development tool for digital
ministers, policymakers and analysts delving into comparative analysis and contemporary research
on e-government. The Survey assesses global and regional e-government development through a
comparative rating of national government portals relative to one another. It is designed to provide
a snapshot of country trends and relative rankings of e-government development in the
implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals.

About the Methodology
The Survey tracks progress of e-government development via the United Nations E-Government
Development Index (EGDI). The EGDI, which assesses e-government development at the national
level, is a composite index based on the weighted average of three normalized indices. One-third is
derived from the Telecommunications Infrastructure Index (TII), one-third from the Human Capital
Index (HCI), and one-third from the Online Service Index (OSI)the latter based on data collected from
an independent Online Service Questionnaire (OSQ), conducted by UNDESA, which assesses the
national online presence of all 193 United Nations Member States, complemented by a Member
State Questionnaire (MSQ). The Survey also includes the E-Participation Index (EPI), a supplementary
index to the United Nations E-Government Survey focusing on the government use of online services
through “e-information sharing”, “e-consultation” and “e-decision-making” and the Local Online
Services Index (LOSI), a study assessing progress made in local e-government development through
the e-government portals of cities.
