This is reflected in the latest study United Nations E-Government Survey conducted by the UN for the purpose of ascertaining the degree of development of indicators E-government and E-Participation in the 191 countries that are part of the organization.

As shown in the E-Participation, Spain is in third place in the 157 countries surveyed, representing a climb of 31 places from the data collected in 2008, and keeps our country in a privileged position just below the Republic of Korea and Australia.

As the indicator of development of E-Government is concerned, Spain is situated in an impressive ninth, fifth if you only take into account European countries. This figure represents an improvement of eleven positions when compared with the Incorporated in 2008, the year in which Spain was at No. 20.



Despite being ahead of such significant countries such as France, Germany or Japan, and that eGovernment has experienced an impressive development in the quality of services provided to citizens, the truth is that there are still gains by comply. In fact, as the registration procedures or civil registration of a new birth, citizens are still forced to move physically to the appropriate administrative office.

Local government represents the Achilles heel of our society as to the advancement of eGovernment is concerned. Something logical if one takes into account that many municipalities are experiencing significant cuts in their budget.
