  • Digital States is the Unites States only sustaining survey of state governments’ use of technology in serving the citizen. The all-new 2006 Digital States Survey provides a benchmark for the next generation of digital service delivery and reflects contemporary citizen expectations and the technologies used to meet them.

    In June, the Center invited all state governors and their chief information officers to participate in the revised 2006 Digital States Survey. With more than 70 measurements in four broad areas–service delivery, architecture and infrastructure, collaboration, and leadership – this year’s survey is the first report on the transition of states to digital government since the 2004 elections.

    The survey is just one of a series of national studies conducted by the Center that examine best practices and IT innovations in government. City and county governments, along with school boards and community colleges, are also surveyed throughout the year.
    The Digital States Survey is conducted biennially in even-numbered years, providing a longer horizon in assessing state progress.
