Introduction

According to the 2010 Census, 1.2 million people in the United States identified as Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islander, either alone or in combination with one or more other races. The Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islander population was the race group most likely to report multiple races in 2010, as more than half (56 percent) reported multiple races. The Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islander population was one of the fastest-growing race groups between 2000 and 2010.

This report provides a portrait of the Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islander population in the United States and discusses that population’s distribution at the national level and at lower levels of geography. It is part of a series that analyzes population and housing data collected from the 2010 Census.

The data for this report are based on the 2010 Census Redistricting Data (Public Law 94-171) Summary File, which was the first 2010 Census data product released with data on race and Hispanic origin, including information on the Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islander population, and was provided to each state for use in drawing boundaries for legislative districts. Data for this report also come from the 2010 Census Summary File 1, which was one of the first 2010 Census data products to provide information on selected detailed groups, such as Tongans, Marshallese, and Fijians.
