Abstract: Information quality plays an important role in influencing technology use. To date there have been many studies determining the relationship between quality information and e-government use. However, very few studies have examined gender's role in simplifying the relationship between qualitative information and e-government acceptance. A total of 543 participants were involved in this study. This study determines that quality of information has a positive and significant relationship with quality of information, and the use of e-government, while explaining the variance of e-government adoption by 15%. The implications of the study have also been discussed.

Keywords: information quality; partial least square; PLS; SPSS; technology adoption; e-government.
