A new survey suggests roughly four in ten Koreans have recently used the website of a government agency, a level high enough to put Korea in seventh place when compared to countries in the European Union.

The Ministry of Public Administration and Security says the study, based on EU standards, polling citizens aged 16 to 74, found that 39 percent of respondents used government websites in the last three months.

Meanwhile, in the EU, Denmark had the highest rate at 67 percent, followed by Sweden and the Netherlands. But the EU average was only 29 percent, that is, 10 percent lower than Korea.

The ministry conducted the study in order to prepare a bill aimed at enhancing the nation's e-Government system.
