The Native Hawaiian Data Book is a periodic publication of the Office of Hawaiian Affairs (OHA) which was established during the 1978 Constitutional Convention to serve as the principal public agency in the State of Hawaii responsible for the performance, development, and coordination of programs relating to Native Hawaiians. The first hard copy edition of the Native Hawaiian Data Book was published in 1994, and the first online edition in 1996. Starting in 2011, hard copies of the Data Book were discontinued and switched entirely to a digital format. The digital format provides greater flexibility in disseminating current data, and can be updated in a timelier manner. For example, the Health and Vital Statistics and Human Services tables were updated in January and March of 2020, respectively.
