42 U.S. Code § 3057g - Findings

prev | next
The Congress finds the older Native Hawaiians—
(1) have a life expectancy 10 years less than any other ethnic group in the State of Hawaii;
(2) rank lowest on 9 of 11 standard health indicies  [1] for all ethnic groups in Hawaii;
(3) are often unaware of social services and do not know how to go about seeking such assistance; and
(4) live in poverty at a rate of 34 percent.


[1]  So in original. Probably should be “indices”.
