at Brown University examined 1,813 Web sites, searched each site
for 27 different features, and ranked the sites on a 100-point scale.
They based ratings on such things as clear information about contacting
government offices, online services, high-quality access for citizens
with disabilities or limited English, and policies to protect security
and privacy. The Consumer Product
Safety Commission, Internal Revenue
Service, and Department of the
Treasury all achieved a 92-point ranking in the index.
