Native Hawaiian Data Book 2021

The Native Hawaiian Data Book is a biennial online data book produced by the Office of Hawaiian Affairs (OHA). This data book was first compiled in 1994 as a part of the mission of OHA to identify the physical, sociological, psychological and economic needs of Native Hawaiians. Since then, the data book has been continually updated every two years as a source of comprehensive, up-to-date information on the Native Hawaiian population and programs that serve them. Data on population, housing, labor and employment, income, land, water and air, education, health and vital statistics, human services, crime and legacy are included.

Below are some highlights from the 2021 Databook

  • During the school year 2019-2020, a total of 2,338 degrees were earned by Native Hawaiians through the University of Hawai’i System. 
  • As of June 2020, there were 9,933 Department of Hawaiian Home Lands homestead leases across the state, with 8,427 of them being residential leases, 1,096 being agricultural leases and 410 being pastoral leases. However, an additional 45,869 applications were on the waiting list. 
  • In 2020, water consumption in Honolulu County (46,256 million gallons) was almost twice the water consumption of Hawai’i, Maui and Kaua’i counties combined (24,686 million gallons).
