More than 1-in-2 people who reported in Census 2000 that they were Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islander resided in just two states -- Hawaii and California, according to a new analysis released today by the Commerce Department's Census Bureau.
The Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islander Population: 2000 , one in a series of Census 2000 briefs, shows that 874,000 people, or 0.3 percent of the total population, reported they were Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islander. The number includes 399,000 people, or 0.1 percent, who reported they were Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander alone, in addition to 476,000, or 0.2 percent, who reported this race in combination with one or more other races.
Census 2000 was the first census in which respondents could identify themselves as more than one race. Hawaii and California together were the home states of 58 percent of Pacific Islanders. In this release, the term "Pacific Islander" refers to those persons who identified themselves as Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islander either alone or in combination with one or more other races. Those two states, plus Washington, Texas, New York, Florida, Utah, Nevada, Oregon and Arizona, accounted for 80 percent of the total Pacific Islander population in 2000.
