Between 2019 and 2021, the number of people working from home in Hawaii more than doubled from 4.8% to 10.7%. At a national level, remote work tripled. Among the fifty states and Washington D.C., the State of Hawaii ranked 42nd for remote work.

Several new tables were added for computer and internet, housing, industry, and poverty status.
