DC Ranks in Top Digital Cities Survey
In its 2004 Digital Cities survey, the Center for Digital Government ranked the District of Columbia 9th among America’s most technology-advanced cities. The annual study examines how city governments utilize digital technologies to better serve their citizens and streamline operations.
The Center for Digital Government and the National League of Cities (NLC) developed the survey last summer and invited more than 600 city mayors, managers and chief information officers to participate.
The survey grouped cities into four population categories: 250,000 or greater, 125,000-249,999, 75,000-124,999, and 30,000-74,999.
The District increased its ranking from 20th in 2003 to 9th in 2004 among cities with a population of 250,000 or greater.
With nearly all of the city’s agencies and services online, the District is truly a digital city. Users of the DC government website, www.dc.gov, are able to locate unclaimed property, renew a driver’s license, apply for a business license and much more.
