Census Bureau to Release Details About Native Hawaiian- and Other Pacific Islander-Owned Businesses
- The rate of growth for Native Hawaiian- and other Pacific Islander-owned businesses between 1997 and 2002 was more than three times faster than the national average. The U.S. Census Bureau will hold a news conference to discuss the details about these firms.
A new report gives the number, percent, sales and receipts of Native Hawaiian- and other Pacific Islander-owned businesses by subgroup. Other highlights include industry data, local data sets and firms with paid employees by type of business.
This information originates from the 2002 Economic Census, the Census Bureau’s most detailed source of information about Native Hawaiian- and other Pacific Islander-owned businesses.
