Information About Hawaii
Hawaii is the 50th state to join the United States back in 1959. It is comprised exclusively of several islands only and is the only US state located in Oceana and not situated in the Americas. The state is comprised almost entirely of volcanic Hawaiian archipelago. The largest of all Hawaiian islands is referred to as “Big Island” or sometimes “Hawai’i Island.” Hawaii is a huge tourist destination due to its volcanoes, diverse natural foliage and scenery, warm tropical climate, public beaches and world famous surfing conditions.
Hawaii is located about 2000 miles southwest of the contiguous United States, and due to its volcanic activity it boasts impressive elevations, including their tallest mountain Mauna Kea which stands 13,796 feet above sea level. Volcanic activity continues to build islands today.
The population of Hawaii is approximately 1,440,000 according to the US Census Bureau. A large number of de facto population is due to tourists and a large number of stationed military personnel. Hawaii has the lowest percentage of white Americans and the highest percentage of Asian Americans of any state in the US. It is the only state in our country where Asian Americans are the largest ethnic group. Approximately 80,000 or 5.9% of Hawaii’s population are indigenous Hawaiians. Christianity is the most popular religion in Hawaii, and Buddhism is the second most practiced religion.
The cost of living in Hawaii is relatively high compared to that of most major US cities, mostly due to tourism excise taxes, hotel room taxes and also the fact that most consumer goods need to be brought into the island which raises the price of these items. The islands of Hawaii are Hawai’i, Maui, Kaho’olawe, Lana’i, Moloka’i, O’ahu, Kaua’i and Ni’ihau.
