OECD Digital Government Index

Show all indicators of Society


The use of digital technologies by governments enables the development of people-centric and user-driven policies. The OECD Digital Government Index (DGI) benchmarks the comprehensiveness of digital government strategies and initiatives by assessing the presence of a whole-of-government approach to adopting digital technologies and using data in central and federal public sector organisations. The assessment is based on the six dimensions of the OECD Digital Government Policy Framework: 1) digital by design, 2) data-driven public sector, 3) government as a platform, 4) open by default, 5) user-driven, and 6) proactiveness (see notes). The DGI is a composite index that takes values from 0 to 1, where 1 indicates the highest digital government maturity and 0 indicates low and/or fragmented progress across organisations.
