The latest data on health-related risk behaviors, chronic health conditions, and use of preventive services among adults in Hawaii are available on the Hawaii Indicator-Based Information System (Hawaii-IBIS)! Explore the more recent findings from the Hawaii Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) using our newest data tool. Hawaii-IBIS gives you the power to define your search and pinpoint the data you need.
Here are some of the highlights from the 2015 BRFSS data for Hawaii:
Almost 10% of men aged 65 to 74 years reported they have coronary heart disease. This compares to less than 4% of women in the same age range. The difference in coronary heart disease rates between men and women grows larger with age.
Approximately 1 in every 9 (11.6%) adults in Hawaii reports they have experienced depression. However, among Caucasian females, that rate jumps to over 1 in 6 (22.2%). Seeking support for depression is an important step in restoring quality of life.
Honolulu County has the lowest proportion of adults who consume at least five fruits and vegetables per day (18.4%). Among the communities of Hawaii, the North Shore and Laie have the highest rate of fruit and vegetable consumption (33.3%). The Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommend eating a wide range of fruits and vegetables every day.

The latest Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS) middle school reports are now available! Additionally, a selection of YRBS indicators for both high school and middle school have been loaded into our newest data query tool, the Hawaii Indicator-Based Information System (Hawaii-IBIS).
Here are a few highlights from the 2015 YRBS middle school data…
Bullying continues to be an issue among middle school students in Hawaii. Almost half (45%) report they have been bullied on school property and a quarter (25%) say they have been cyber-bullied. Youth who are bullied are more likely to experience depression, anxiety, substance use, and health complaints.
Over half (51%) of middle school students in Hawaii report they get 8 or more hours of sleep on an average school night. This is important because insufficient sleep can negatively affect academic performance and has been linked to depression and substance use.
One in five middle school students in Hawaii meet the Federal Guidelines for physical activity. In fact, the percent of middle school students who report being physically active for at least an hour every day in the past week has increased 60% since 2005 (16.9%, 2005 YRBS; 27.4%, 2015 YRBS). This is a great development as regular physical activity improves many aspects of health.

The Hawaii Health Data Warehouse routinely publishes reports from several data sources, including Vital Statistics and several surveillance programs.
