ABSTRACT

Based on the Citizen Perception Survey Data of The Knowledge Center for Public Administration and Policy in 2009, this paper empirically examines whether e-government Web site usage affects policy literacy which is often considered as a prerequisite for deliberative democracy. Our regression analysis shows that central e-government Web site usage has positive and significant influences on policy literacy. The paper also find that the frequency of offline contact experiences with government units, discussion of government-related issues, the degree of civic activities and election participation significantly enhance policy literacy as well.
