The State of Fathers in the State of Hawai‘i

From the Hawaii Department of Human Services, September, 2015 

(excerpt from page 18)


Using recently published data from the 2000 and 2010 U.S. Censuses and the 2008-2012 American Community Survey 5-year sample, the following portrait of Hawai‘i’s fathers emerges.

Marital Status

Fathers in Hawai‘i are more likely than their counterparts in the nation as a whole to be part of a married-couple family, and are less likely to be absent from the family. The rate of father-absent family households in the state is less than one fifth while the nationwide rate is higher, almost one quarter. Household composition is diverse in the state: The rate of married-couple families in the City and County of Honolulu is more than 10% higher than in Hawai‘i County, and the rate of father-absent family households in the City and County of Honolulu is about 6% lower than the rate in Hawai‘i County (Table 10; Figure 13).

In 2010, the percent of two-parent households with own minor children in Hawai‘i was 72.6% (67.9% nationwide). The City and County of Honolulu had the highest proportion of all counties (75.7% versus 64.4% in Hawai‘i, 66.6% in Maui, and 67.4% in Kaua‘i).

In 2010, the percent of single-mother households of all family households with own minor children was 18.9% in Hawai‘i versus 24.1% in the nation, while the percent of single-father households of all family households with own minor children was 8.5% in the state versus 8% in the nation (Table 10; Figure 14).

Between 2000 to 2010, the proportion of father-mother homes with children decreased (2.2% in the state and 3.9% in the nation), while the proportion of father-absent homes increased (0.6% in the state and 2.2% in the nation). The change in the proportion of father-absent homes was not uniform across the counties. There has been an increase of 0.5% in Honolulu and of 2.5% in Maui, but there has been a decrease of 0.6% in Hawai‘i and of 0.3% in Kaua‘i....
