The Amartya Sen’s Capability Approach was adopted as theoretical framework for its consideration of people’s freedom to decide on their use of the available resources and their competencies for these decisions, leading to the use of e-government services. This paper uses a positivistic approach a descriptive and exploratory analysis of secondary data (micro-data) from the 2007, 2009 and 2011 editions of the ICT Household survey.
