Abstract

Illegitimate birth rates were computed by census tract for the Honolulu Standard Metropolitan Area. Despite the atypical character of this area, the illegitimacy rates conformed closely to classical ecological models. Rates followed a distinct geographic gradient and showed a relatively high correlation with most, but not all, housing, health, and social-breakdown rates.
