Aloha kākou –
On behalf of the people of the County of Maui, it is my pleasure to present the 2010 edition of the Maui County Data Book.
The Maui County Data Book is the definitive statistical reference work on Maui Nui – Kaho`olawe, Lāna`i, Maui and Moloka`i. It contains tables and statistics covering a broad spectrum of economic activity. The findings presented in this book will help the reader in numerous ways: Look up a fact, compare statistics over time, prepare for a grant, back up a business plan, decide where to start a business and, with the addition of community input, gain a better understanding of what we as Mauians define as Maui Nui.
None of the valuable information contained in the 2010 Maui County Data Book would be possible without the vital working partnership of the Hawai`i Small Business Development Center Network’s Hawai`i Business Research Library in Kīhei and the Maui County Office of Economic Development. Together they provide the most up-to-date data critical to informed decision-making by both prospective and established businesses in our community.
As with earlier editions of the Maui County Data Book, the 2010 edition is available online at our Maui County Website at www.co.maui.hi.us and at the Hawai`i Business Research Library’s Website www.hbrl-sbdc.org, and we hope you will use it often to help you start-up, grow and expand upon your exciting business idea.
