^The Big Island of Hawai'i, Maui, and West Oahu (Kapolei - a suburb of Honolulu). A lot of steady growth is definately due to international immigration. There's a steady stream of immigrants moving to the islands in relatively large numbers legal and illegal from the Philippines, China & its S.A.R.'s, Mexico, Brasil, Marshall Islands, Samoa, Tonga, Federated States of Micronesia, Palau, Japan, Korea, Vietnam, Thailand, Canada, Germany, U.K., Argentina, Peru, India, Sri Lanka, Russia, Guatemala, Indonesia, Malaysia, Nepal, Burma, France, etc. However domestically Honolulu County (Oahu) loses people every year most of which i'd imagine are because of the rotating military peeps and their dependents, i'm not exactly sure how much of the people (numbers or percetange wise) that move from Honolulu are true ex-pats. But Maui and the Big Island continue to gain domestically especially from California. I have noticed a change in Honolulu over the past couple of years demographically as it is and has always been extremely diverse ethnically, however the racial composition is changing quite rapidlly as i notice more and more African Americans in the city (not sure about the burbs) than ever before as well as Subsaharan Africans (Nigerian, Ghanaian, Kenyan, etc) and Caribbean Blacks too like Jamaicans, Trinidadians - most of which i believe are secondary migrants, meaning they originally settled elsewhere then later moved here. I think the newer influx of people are also having an impact on the creole language here in many ways i've noticed it becoming less and less noticeable as many of the youth are starting to sound more like people from the West Coast versus the older generation who continues to speak Pidgin/Hawaii Creole and a few of its dialects (ie: Hilo's dialect is somewhat heavy and can be a little difficult to understand at times, well for those that speak and know the creole, Kauai and Maui also have slight variations with certain words). Anyway, it will be interesting to see what Hawaii will be like in the next 5-10 years.

It is adjacent to Anchorage, and based on what I see on Google Maps, it looks like the largest towns and cities are clustered at the southern end of the Borough, near Anchorage. It has a population density of 3 people per square mile. :P

*I personally, don't agree with these numbers because Honolulu is booming; the workforce is at its largest ever, immigration levels are on the rise both domestic and international and birth rates are pretty high too. Of course we'll just have to wait until the official stats are taken in 2010 to see what's really going on. :P

^Yeah the city is supposedly losing people according to the Census but i won't fully agree with any of these numbers until the 2010 census when they attempt to do the 100% account.
