In 1997, the Office of Management and Budget issued revised standards for reporting race and ethnicity in federal datasets. In addition to permitting the reporting of two or more races for each record, the revised standards separated the "Asian or Pacific Islander" category into two categories: "Asian" and "Native Hawaiian or other Pacific Islander" (NHPI). To quantify the health status of NHPI mothers and infants in King County, Washington, 2003--2008 vital statistics for NHPI disaggregated from Asians were used to assess several key maternal and birth outcome indicators. This analysis determined that, compared with Asians in King County, NHPI mothers were significantly more likely to be adolescents, overweight or obese before pregnancy, or to have smoked during pregnancy, and their infants were more likely to be born preterm, weigh >4,500 g, or receive either third trimester only or no prenatal care. These results identify important differences and support routine presentation of health data separately for Asians and NHPIs.
