DEMOGRAPHICS - Births by Ethnicity
County  |  Age Group  |  Ethnicity  |  Population Type
Birth rates in Hawai'i differ significantly by ethnicity even though birth rates across all ethnicities have decreased since 1980. Excluding "all others" as a group, since the late 1980s Hawaiians/part-Hawaiians and Filipinos have had the highest birth rates. However, in recent years, Caucasians have had an increase in birthrates as well. Chinese and Japanese have consistently had the lowest rates.
