Population of children under 18 in Hawaii
Why This Indicator Matters
Due to declining birth rates and the growing aging population, the number of children under 18 is a much smaller share of the population today than 100 years ago.1 This population is racially and ethnically diverse and has unique needs, including access to quality education and employment. The population of children under 18 is projected to remain at the current level over the next few decades.2

The Population Estimates Program data used here are revised to reflect updated input data and new Census Bureau population controls. Population estimates for previous years change with the release of each new 5-year Census estimate. Since the U.S. Census Bureau revises their post-2010 estimates each year, the data presented here may differ from previously published estimates.
