Hawaii Economy

Hawaii’s economy was stable with continued improvement in certain aspects, particularly in tourism, during the first two months of 2012. For the first two months of 2012, total visitor arrivals increased by 6.7% and visitor spending increased by 11.4% compared to the same period in 2011. The increase in visitor spending was primarily due to strong spending growth by visitors from Japan and Canada. Hotel occupancy and revenue per available room also continued to improve. Overall, state job growth has begun to stabilize as the statewide seasonally adjusted unemployment rate was 6.4% as of March 2012, compared to 8.2% nationally. For the first three months of 2012, the volume of single-family home sales was slightly lower than the same period in 2011, while the median price of single family homes sold on Oahu was higher compared to the same period in 2011. Months of inventory continued to remain low at approximately 4 months as of March 31, 2012. More information on current Hawaii economic trends is presented in Table 15.
