The E-Government survey by United Nations’s Department and Economy and Social Affairs ranked 193 countries in terms of digital government readiness and implementation has given Denmark the highest score for the second time.

According to the survey, Denmark was ranked top for its “holistic approach to digital government” that puts people first and revolves around the needs of individuals, including those left furthest behind.
