The Hawaii Census

On this episode of INSIGHTS, host Dan Boylan and guest panelists will examine Hawaii's 2010 census results. A recent follow-up report states that Hawaii leads the nation in ethnic diversity, multigenerational households and cost of living. Hawaii's population has also risen by 12 percent since the last census in 2000. Guests will explain these demographics and more, what they mean for future policy planning and how Hawaii residents would ultimately be affected.

Scheduled guests include: Susan (Meyers) Chandler, Director of the Public Policy Center in the College of Social Sciences at the University of Hawaii-Manoa; James Christy, the Regional Director for the U-S Census Bureau,Los Angeles region; Steve Petranik, the editor of Hawaii Business magazine; and Eugene Tian, Hawaii's Acting State Economist and Chief Statistician.

This conversation was recorded on October 6, 2011 in the PBS Hawaii studio. Insights on PBS Hawaii is presented on Thursdays at 7:30.
