New Census Data Details Hawaii Age, Race, Housing05/18/2011
It's official — Hawaii is just a little bit older than it was a decade ago.
New data shows that the median age in the islands is now 38.6 years old, up from 36.2 in the 2000 Census.
An announcement from the Census released early Thursday morning Eastern time by the U.S. Census Bureau also shows Hawaii's average household size was 2.89 people and among the state's occupied housing units, 57.7 percent were owned, compared with 42.3 percent that were rented.
The first batch of 2010 Census data was revealed earlier this year and included the state's total population, racial breakdown (for those who identified one race only), vacant and occupied housing units and number of Hispanic residents.
