UN reports (2002‑2005) reveal several differences in worldwide adoption of e‑Government by public administration (PA). This research conducts an analysis of the impact of the national culture on e‑ Government adoption by PA to attempt to explain these differences. The impact of culture, as defined by Hofstede, is tested at the level of Web Measure Index and at the different stages of e‑Government evolution. The regression analysis and Pearson's coefficients show the importance of Individualism and Uncertainty Avoidance. Power Distance has lower impact on e‑Government adoption. The level of education attainment moderates these relationships. 


Keywords: e-Government, stages of e-Government evolution, Web Measure Index, national culture
