Research

Referring to the search for wholeness and balance, ‘Imi Pono seeks a more complete picture of wellbeing among Native Hawaiians and Hawai‘i residents. As the source and outcome of multiple factors, wellbeing feeds, and is fed by, many streams. Native Hawaiian perspectives of wellbeing emphasize relationships, interconnections, and balance.

Increasing and sustaining wellbeing requires relevant and actionable data. ‘Imi Pono examines wellbeing from holistic and strengths-based perspectives. The results will inform organizational planning and improve community services for Native Hawaiians.

The ‘Imi Pono Hawaiʻi Wellbeing Survey is a partnership between Kamehameha Schools, Lili‘uokalani Trust, and the Office of Hawaiian Affairs and contracted with Marzano Research.
