e.Republic's Center for Digital Government (Center) has completed this year's evaluation of America's top digital county governments and found many counties using information technology in increasingly innovative ways to improve service to their citizens.

The 2008 Digital Counties Survey -- an annual study by the Center for Digital Government and the National Association of Counties (NACo) -- recognizes the hard work and innovation of county governments, and will honor the top digital counties during NACo's annual conference in Kansas City, Missouri, July 11-15.

"The Digital Counties Survey continues to document the technological progress and innovation of county governments," said Center Executive Director Cathilea Robinett. "Improved service to citizens and more efficient use of government resources are the results. Congratulations to all the winners."

In April, thousands of U.S. counties were invited to participate in the 2008 Digital Counties Survey. County officials responded to questions that included more than 100 measurements and data points about online service delivery, infrastructure, architecture and governance models.

The first-place winners in each of the four population categories are:

"We are seeing county governments utilizing the efficiencies of technology to deliver services to Americans," said NACo Executive Director Larry E. Naake. "Across a broad spectrum of service delivery needs and budgetary challenges, counties continue to develop improved service delivery options made possible by technology."

This year's survey was underwritten by Hyland Software, developers of OnBase, CDW-G and Microsoft.
