Methodology: How do you determine which city is best for singles in Hawaii anyways?

To give you the places in Hawaii which are best for singles to find one another, we used Saturday Night Science to look at a handful of metrics. Of course, we want to measure the type of people who live in each city and make some assumptions about what single people like.

So we researched the internet for a database that contains all that information.

We threw a lot of criteria at this one to get the best, most complete results possible. Using the 2017-2021 American Community Survey Census data produced for the state of Hawaii, we looked at every single city in the state. We paid particular attention to:

  • Population density
  • % of population that’s male vs. female (closer to a 50-50 ratio is better)
  • % of households with kids
  • Median age
  • Number of unmarried people in each city

We then gave each city a “Singles Score.”

The higher the score, the better the city is for singles to find one another. We also limited our results to cities with over 10,000 people. For Hawaii, that meant a total of 28 cities.

We updated this article for 2023. This is our tenth time ranking the best cities for singles in Hawaii.

Read on to see why Urban Honolulu is the talk of the town while Hawaiian Paradise Park is probably a bit on the bland side.
