An international survey of city websites has identified Seoul, South Korea, as the top-ranked city in the performance of municipal e-governance for the years 2015-16. The survey evaluated the performance of websites of municipalities worldwide for privacy and security, usability, content, services, and citizen and social engagement, and ranked the cities on a global scale.

McCormack Graduate School of Policy and Global Studies at the University of Massachusetts Boston, and was co-sponsored by the Public Technology Institute (PTI).
