The purpose of this study was to examine E-Government services for citizenry at the county level. The study involved data collection from a random sample of 346 counties in the United States. The collected data included county website presence, twelve E-Government factors, median household income and poverty percentage. The results indicated that less affluent counties were more likely to not have a web presence or offer fewer E-Government services than more affluent counties.
