2nd Annual Digital Cities Survey - 2002 Results

by Charlie Lay / January 1, 2002

Underwritten by Microsoft, the 2002 Digital Cities Survey examined how city governments have progressed in adopting and utilizing digital technologies to improve the delivery of services to their citizens.

Mayors, chief information officers and city managers at over 300 of the nation's cities were invited to participate. The survey grouped cities into three categories based on population: More than 250,000, 125,000-250,000, and 75,000-125,000.
