New figures from the U.S. Census Bureau are showing that
Hawaii’s population has expanded in the last decade by 12
percent, to almost 1.4 million residents.
Population figures for the country and individual states were released Tuesday by the agency, which strives to count every resident every decade.
The 2000 census indicated Hawaii’s population was 1.21 million. The new figures show that number has grown to 1.36 million.
In 1960, just after it became a state, Hawaii was home to about 632,000.
