Livability For All

The 2014 Livable Communities Survey of Honolulu, Hawaii, Adults Age 45+

A livable community provides resources that allow residents to age-in-place, and fosters residents’ engagement in their community’s civic, economic and social life. The 2014 AARP Livable Communities Survey in Honolulu, Hawaii of Adults Age 45+ was commissioned to help Oahu decision makers achieve the goal of livability.

Using an operationalization of the World Health Organization’s eight domains of livable community, important community features as well as perceived community needs by Oahu adults age 45+ were identified. 

The top community needs were concentrated in five domains: Housing, Employment, Community Health and Services, Social Inclusion, and Community Resources. Adults age 55-64 reported the greatest community needs compared to younger (age 45-54) or older (age 65+) adults. 

Overall, Community and Health Services is rated as the most important livable community domain for Honolulu residents age 45+ among all eight WHO domains. Outdoor Spaces and Buildings narrowly outranked Housing for second and third order ranking respectively.   

This report is based on data from a mail survey of 7,500 residents, age 45 years or older living on the Hawaiian island of Oahu. The survey was fielded from March 7 through April 29, 2014, yielding a total of 607 useable surveys. For more information, contact Brittne Nelson at bnelson@aarp.org.
