The Efficiency of Government IT Investment: An Econometric Comparison of European Countries

This IDC research paper presents the first international benchmark report that combines data on government ICT spending with publicly available egovernment international benchmarks. Furthermore, a model is used to make ICT spending comparable with respect to a country's economic performance and population size, so that the paper gives an unbiased assessment of which European countries are spending comparatively more, and whether this spending translates into measurable results.
