The use of technology to offer goods and services by governments to citizens has been a growing phenomenon in the last decade. Many projects have been recorded across nations in an effort to encourage the adoption and diffusion of e-government. However, these studies have been rather isolated project reports than a com- prehensive global picture. This study examines the e-government diffusion across 192 countries in the last decade. The panel data obtained is analyzed to evaluate the current state of e-government diffusion. Evidence in the last decade suggests that the difference in e-government diffusion is wider from country to country, than from year to year, within the same country and that country-specific effects account for these differences. The authors discuss the implications of these findings.
