How To

Finding data

Exploring Groups

The datasets in the NHDP are grouped into 7 dimensions of wellbeing. They are organized based on their primary focus allowing the user to quickly find related data.

Dataset Groups

Searching the site

To find datasets in the NHDP, type any combination of search words (e.g. “Hawaiʻi”, “child”, etc) in the search box on any page. NHDP returns the first page of results for your search. You can:

  • View more pages of results.
  • Repeat the search, altering some terms.
  • Restrict the search to datasets with particular tags, data formats, etc using the filters in the left-hand column If there are a large number of results, the filters can be very helpful, since you can combine filters, selectively adding and removing them, and modify and repeat the search with existing filters still in place.
