Availability of Electronic Versions of the Data Book Tables

Selected State of Hawaii Data Books are available to the public on CD-ROMs and the Internet.

Electronic versions of the Data Book on CD-ROM were distributed on the Hawai’i Data Disc series. The first Hawai’i Data Disc, produced by the Research and Economic Analysis Division of DBEDT in 1993, contained the 1989 through 1992 Data Books. The 2002 Hawai’i Data Disc became available in September 2002 and included the Data Books for 1998 through 2001; the 2003 Hawai’i Data Disc in November 2003 with the Data Books for 2001 and 2002; the 2004 Hawai’i Data Disc in November 2004 with the Data Books for 2002 and 2003; the 2005 Hawai’i Data Disc in August 2005 with the Data Books for 2000 through 2004.; and the 2006 Hawai’i Data Disc in August 2006 with the Data Books for 2001 through 2005. There were two releases of the 2007 Hawai’i Data Disc. The first, Version 1.0, was released in August 2007 and the second, Version 2.0, was released in January 2008. Both versions included the Data Books for 2002 through 2006, but Version 2.0 also included revised and updated Data Book tables. The 2008 Hawai’i Data Disc became available in August 2008 and included the Data Books for 2003 through 2007. The last CD-ROM, the 2009 Hawai’i Data Disc, was released in August 2009 and included the Data Books for 2004 through 2008. From 2010, the Hawai’i Data Disc was no longer produced.

Since 1996, the Data Book and other DBEDT publications and information have been made available on the Internet. The current DBEDT site is http://dbedt.hawaii.gov. Data Book tables may be viewed or downloaded from this website. Updates and revisions to the tables will also be accessible throughout the year on the DBEDT Internet site.

A related online product is the State of Hawaii Data Book Time Series. Information from Data Books published between 1969 to the present were combined to produce a time series for selected tables. Only tables that had at least five years of continuous data were selected. This product is also found on the current DBEDT Internet site.

Time-series data from the Data Book can also be obtained using the custom search function from the DBEDT Data Warehouse, a web-based data query platform. The Internet site which hosts the DBEDT Data Warehouse is at http://www.hawaiieconomicdata.com/.
