Quick Facts: Births

The birth rate is defined as the number of live births per 1,000 women of childbearing age (15-44 years). Sustained low birth rates may indicate that the population is aging, and sustained high birth rates may predict a much younger age structure in the population. It can be helpful to understand how the birth rate changes for different maternal age groups and for different racial and ethnic backgrounds, and how these births are distributed in a population.

• In 2016, there were 18,059 live births in Hawaii.
 
• The birth rate in Hawaii in 2016 was 67.6 per 1,000 women ages 15-44.
 
• Of all live births in Hawaii during 2014-2016 (average), 15.1% were Hispanic, 25.9% were white, 3.2% were black, 0.2% were American Indian/Alaska Native and 55.5% were Asian/Pacific Islander.
