Abstract

Intuitively, it is logical to think that citizens using the internet are likely to use e-government services. Consequently, the role of the government would be to provide more e-government services. This paper test the relationship between internet use and e-government diffusion. The study used secondary data from the World Bank and United Nations database to examine the effect of internet use on e-government diffusion. Three small island developing countries were studied - Fiji, Jamaica and Mauritius. The findings show that internet use had a positive and significant effect on e-government diffusion only in Fiji but not in Jamaica and Mauritius.
