Full Answer

According to the census statistics, the majority of Honolulu's population is made up of Asian Americans, while those of purely native Hawaiian descent make up only 3.2 percent of the overall population. Due to the largely varying demographics, and the island's strategic position in the mid-Pacific, Honolulu also serves as home to a number of diplomatic facilities, including Japanese and South Korean embassies.
