Abstract

The level of development of the e-services of the cantonal municipalities varies depending on several determinants such as the size of the government, population density, budgets assigned by the central government, among others. This article aims to determine the development of the e-government of the cantons that are the most representative in each province because they are the ones that contain in their jurisdictions their respective provincial capitals and for having achieved a greater social and economic development. For this purpose, the information contained in the web portals of 24 cantonal municipalities were collected and analyzed. The results show that the degree of e-government development in the cantonal municipalities in general has a tendency similar to that the annual budget and population density, so it is necessary to give more attention to the low-e-government development sectors with in order to achieve greater technological and social equity.
