Description The aim of the publication is to evaluate, based on the classification analysis, the scale of tools of citizen’s eparticipation in the lower territorial self-governing units (municipalities) in the Moravian-Silesian Region. Out of the total of 300 municipalities located in the Moravian-Silesian Region, 34 of them belonging to three types of municipal sizes, were selected by stratified random selection. Municipalities are divided into three groups: with a population of up to 1000 inhabitants, from 1001 to 35 000 inhabitants, and municipalities with more than 35 000 inhabitants (i.e. statutory cities). The authors assume that larger municipalities use more e-participation tools, due to the fact that citizens do not have as much direct contact with the elected representatives as they do in smaller municipalities. However, the correlation analysis did not fully confirm this hypothesis, only a weak positive dependence was proven.
