The achievement of information technology has influenced various aspects of life, including democratic life. Many governments have developed electronic government (e-government) to create better governance, to increase democratization. Quickly, e-government is believed to be the best way and then became a program in many countries. Some international and national institutions address this phenomenon by making an assessing or indexing of the achievements of e-government, such as the UN releasing The E-Government Index (EGI), e-Governance Academy Foundation releasing The National Cyber Security Index (NCSI), the Open Knowledge Foundation releasing The Global Open Data Index (GODI), and even some countries assess the implementation of e-government at every level of government, such as for example Indonesia with the Indonesian E-Government Rating (PeGI). This paper discusses the focus and method of these indexes. By identifying and analyzing their reports and websites, this paper looks for differences and builds the categorization of these indexes. This paper categorizes indices into three categories: the managerial indices, the human resources indices, and the democratic indices.
