This 2015 County of Hawai‘i Data Book is intended to serve as a convenient collection of statistics on the social, economic, demographic and other information of the County. It concentrates local data in a single, convenient reference source and may be used both as a statistical reference and as a guide to other statistical publications and sources.
This publication represents a part of the continuous effort by the Hawai‘i County Department of Research and Development to provide informational services to County departments, other governmental agencies and the general public.
Although compilation of the data this year was done by the Hawai‘i SBDC Network, Hawai‘i Business Research Library (HBRL), under the direction of the Department of Research and Development, many others in Hawai‘i County contributed to this effort. We wish to acknowledge the assistance of the other County departments, as well as private organizations and the State and Federal agencies that recognize the need for up-to-date statistics for the County of Hawai‘i. To them we extend our deepest appreciation for their support and cooperation.
