Abstract:

Taking 126 country government websites of one western province in China as samples, the influence of website type and design on the website transparence was investigated deeply through using the chi-square test and optimal scaling regression, accompanying with the real-time measurement of the website transparence. The study results showed that: obvious differences were observed for transparency of government websites with different types. The transparency of county government official website was higher than that of country education website and county agricultural information website. Two indicators, website columns and the website accessibility have a significant impact on the transparency in website design dimension. However, there was no significant correlation between the website functional navigation and the transparency. In addition, the county economic development (GDP) also was identified to have a significant impact on the transparency of websites. Therefore, scientific and reasonable suggestions may be offered for the referenced staff based on the above investigation results.
