This paper aims to investigate what kinds of elements affect local government's information policy based on their web sites' analysis. We performed the logistic regression analysis focusing on two view points such as transparency and participation with the following four factors to investigate this issue; a ratio of population, a saturation level of broadband, a ratio of NPO per population, and a ratio of elderly people per population. The first result suggests that only environmental factors (a ratio of population and a saturation level of broadband) might affect a level of transparency in government's websites. The second result suggests that not only an environmental factor (a ratio of population), but also a citizen activity factor (a ratio of NPO per population) might affect a level of civic participation in websites.
