Thus, according the UN E-Government Survey for 2016, our country has moved up from 68th to 56th position.

All the countries in the survey were divided into 4 groups (very high, high, medium and weak) depending on the number of points they gained in the E-Government Development Index (EGDI).
This year, like in 2014, Azerbaijan has entered the “high group” as per EGDI. According to the survey, the United Kingdom holds the leading position among the “high group” countries. Korea, which took the second place in the previous rating, has now settled in the third position. The second place was taken by Australia.

- The Online Services Sub-Index

- The Human Capital Sub-Index
As to the E-Participation Index, Azerbaijan has improved its position by 30 points, having moved up from the 77th to 47th place. Azerbaijan took the second place among the CIS countries in the E-Participation Index.
