Hawaii: Who We Are

Our Sources

Reliable data collection on a big scale takes time. The most recent statistics available for this report are primarily from 2014, sometimes earlier or from 2015.

Our information came from many sources; here are abbreviations and acronyms we use when listing sources:

  • U.S. Census: Census;
  • U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics: BLS;
  • State Department of Business, Economic Development and Tourism: DBEDT;
  • Hawaii Tourism Authority: HTA;
  • The nonprofit Pew Research Center: Pew;
  • U.S. Department of Defense’s Defense Manpower Data Center: DoD;
  • Governing.com: Gov;
  • Office of Hawaiian Affairs Data Book: OHA;
  • United Nations World Tourism Organization: UNWTO;
  • Hawaii Injury Prevention Plan 2012-17: Prevent;
  • University of Hawaii: UH;
  • Centers for Disease Control and Prevention: CDC

Sometimes, one agency will compile or extrapolate data based on information supplied by another agency, such as when DBEDT provides Hawaii-specific data based on Census numbers.

When possible, we provide shortcut links to the source material so you can dive deeper into the numbers.
