The consolidated city-county was established in the city charter adopted in 1907 and accepted by the Legislature of the . As a municipal corporation and jurisdiction it manages aspects of government traditionally exercised by both municipalities and counties in the rest of the United States.

The population of Honolulu County at the 2010 Census was 953,207, making it the tenth-largest municipality in the United States. Because of Hawaii's municipal structure, the United States Census Bureau divides Honolulu County into several census-designated places for statistical purposes.
