The Brown University survey, in its fourth year, measures the online performance of government in 198 countries. Professor Darrell West and a team of researchers reviewed 1,935 government Web sites from June through August. Overall, the research team found 89% of Web sites have online publications and 62% have links to databases. Just 14% show privacy policies, and 8% have security policies. The study found government Web sites lagging on providing access for the disabled, with just 14% of sites providing some form of disability access, such as assistance for the vision or hearing-impaired. That percentage did not increase from the previous year.
