Pew Report-Government Online–The Internet Gives Citizens New Paths

looked for information about a public policy or issue

From the summary: "As government agencies at all levels bring their services online, Americans are turning in large numbers to government websites to access information and services. Fully 82% of internet users (representing 61% of all American adults) looked for information or completed a transaction on a government website in the twelve months preceding this survey. Some of the specific government website activities in which Americans take part include:

• 48% of internet users have

online with their local, state or federal government

• 46% have looked up what services a government agency provides

• 41% have

downloaded government forms

Throughout this report, we refer to anyone who did one or more of these activities in the preceding twelve months as an online government user, and most of these online government users exhibit a relatively wide range of behaviors: the typical online government user engaged in four of these activities in the last year."
