[Objective] This paper conducts comprehensive empirical analysis for e-government service capabilities in China, aiming to address the issues facing the traditional methods. [Methods] We used Multi-dimensional Evaluation Index system to analyze the websites, WeChat profiles, micro-blogs, and other APPs run by city governments at the prefecture-level or above. Then, we ran statistical analysis based on geographical regions, government channels and service dimensions. [Results] -We found that the e-government services of Chinese cities need significant improvements, which posed various impacts on local people. We also identified seven different development stages of e-government services. [Limitations] We did not use time series data and not evaluate the e-government services at county or town levels. [Conclusions] This study offers practical suggestions on improving the e-government services in China.
