Public Wants Govt. Access by Internet - Survey

Date Posted: 2000-11-03

According to an Okinawa Prefecture Planning and Development Section survey, 33 percent of Okinawans own a computer and 20 percent have Internet access. The section sent a questionnaire to 1,500 randomly selected residents throughout the prefecture.

Not surprisingly, while the younger generation embraces computers and Internet wholeheartedly, those who are 50 and older see no need for them. Those who live in urban areas use computers more than those living in rural areas. Fifty four percent of offices have computers and Internet access. Twenty nine percent of those surveyed say they have used e-mail.

What most people desire most is the possibility of using government services through the Internet. An overwhelming majority wished that they could obtain documents, such as copies of family register, certificates of their personal seals and other papers, without visiting the town office. As it is now, a lot of time is spent in city and prefecture offices obtaining those documents that are required everywhere from opening a bank account to renewing a driving license.
