The 2018 edition contains plenty of factoids on the state and its people.
Hawaii’s Department of Business, Economic Development and Tourism on Thursday released the 2018 edition of the State of Hawaii Data Book.
It’s in electronic form and is available on the DBEDT website.
According to DBEDT, the databook “is the most comprehensive statistical book about Hawaii in a single compilation.”
Issues covered include population, education, economics, the environment, energy, business enterprises, government, transportation and tourism.
“The information in the book will help us understand where we came from, identify and track trends and assist us in planning for the future,” said DBEDT Director Mike McCartney.
Here’s a few items of interest, in the view of DBEDT, from the 2018 issue:
Civil Beat is a small nonprofit newsroom that provides free content with no paywall. That means readership growth alone can’t sustain our journalism.
The truth is that less than 1% of our monthly readers are financial supporters. To remain a viable business model for local news, we need a higher percentage of readers-turned-donors.
