Data contained in these tables come from the 2018 Hawai'i Index of Well-Being conducted by SMS Research. The Liliu'okalani Trust, Kamehameha Schools and Office of Hawaiian Affairs participated in a collaborative effort to contribute questions to better understand Native Hawaiian well-being.
The 2018 Hawai'i Index of Well-Being was a statewide telephone survey of over 3,000 Hawai'i residents. A mixed method approach of cell phone, landline telephone and web-based panel was used to collect the data. Stratified randomized sampling, by counties, was used with an over sampling conducted for Native Hawaiians. County level results contained in this brief have a margin of error of no more than plus or minus 6 percentage points at a 95 percent confidence level.
