I am pleased to report that the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) Data Brief on the Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander National Health Interview Survey (NHPI NHIS) was released this morning. A complete copy of the data brief is attached below.

Selected Health Conditions Among Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander Adults: United States 2014
Adena M. Galinsky, Ph.D., Carla E. Zelaya, Ph.D., Patricia M. Barnes, M.A., and Catherine Simile, Ph.D.

Key findings Data from the Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander National Health Interview Survey (NHPI NHIS) and the National Health Interview Survey (NHIS)
  • The age-sex-adjusted percentages of NHPI adults with fair or poor health (15.5%), serious psychological distress (4.1% in past 30 days), cancer (5.7%), coronary heart disease (6.0%), diabetes (15.6%), lower back pain (28.5% in past 3 months), arthritis (19.7%), migraines (14.1% in past 3 months), and asthma (9.9%) were greater than the corresponding percentages for single-race Asian adults.
  • NHPI adults were more likely than all U.S. adults to be in fair or poor health, to have diabetes, and to have ever had asthma, but they were less likely to have cancer.
With best wishes,
