This table shows both the percentage of counties in each state with websites, and the average transparency rating each state received. Averages are calculated by adding up the total number of "yeses" received, divided by the number of counties with websites.

So far, Arizona's county websites have received the highest average rating of 6.533. Not only that, but 100% of it's counties actually have websites. New Mexico fared the worst with an average rating of only 1.222.

For a more in-depth look at specific transparency checklist statistics (budget availability, minutes from open meetings, etc), see below.
