Hawaii 60th State Admission Anniversary (50th state): August 21, 2019

Release Number CB19-SFS.99
Component ID: #ti820946361

From the Guide to 2010 Census State and Local Geography — Hawaii, History:

The United States acquired the area of Hawaii through annexation of the Republic of Hawaii on July 7, 1898. Hawaii was officially organized as a territory of the United States on June 14, 1900, with generally the same boundary as the present state. Hawaii was admitted to the Union on August 21, 1959, as the 50th state.

Census data for Hawaii are available beginning with the 1900 census. The 1910 through 1930 populations do not include Midway Islands, and the 1940 population does not include Baker Island, Canton Island, Enderbury Island, Howland Island, Jarvis Island, Johnston Atoll, and Midway Islands which were enumerated as part of Hawaii Territory even though not legally part of the territory. The 1940 population does include Palmyra Atoll (administratively named Palmyra Island), which was legally part of Hawaii Territory since its organization, but separated from Hawaii upon statehood. (Palmyra Atoll had no population in any other census.) Canton Island and Enderbury Island are now part of the Republic of Kiribati. The other islands and atolls, which are under the jurisdiction of the Department of Interior or the Department of Defense, are part of the U.S. Minor Outlying Islands. For the 1930, 1940, 1950, and 1970 censuses, the population and housing unit data for Kalawao County were included in Maui County.
