  • Description:
    Objectives: The body of nationally representative health statistics for the Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander (NHPI) population is limited, because even the largest health surveys generally do not have an adequate NHPI sample to calculate reliable NHPI statistics. Using data from the Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander National Health Interview Survey (NHPI NHIS) from the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS), this report fills this gap by presenting statistics on health care access and utilization for (a) the total NHPI population and the multiple- and single-race NHPI populations in comparison with other federal race groups and the total U.S. population; (b) single-race NHPI persons compared with multiple-race NHPI persons; and (c) detailed NHPI race groups in comparison with each other and the total U.S. population.

    Methods: The NHPI statistics were calculated using 2014 NHPI NHIS data, while the other race group statistics were calculated using 2014 data from NCHS’ annual National Health Interview Survey.

    Results: NHPI adults aged 18–64 were more likely to be insured and have public health coverage, and those aged 18 and over were more likely to have a usual place of care and an influenza vaccination in the past 12 months compared with all U.S. adults. However, NHPI adults aged 18–64 were less likely to have private insurance, and those aged 65 and over were less likely to have ever received a pneumococcal vaccination compared with all U.S. adults. Compared with Asian adults, NHPI adults were more likely to have a usual place of care but were also more likely to have an unmet dental need. Within the NHPI population, Pacific Islander adults and children were each more likely to be uninsured and less likely to have a usual place of care compared with Native Hawaiian adults and children.
