Hawaii Economy

Hawaii’s economy was stable during the second quarter with continued improvement in tourism, the State’s largest industry. For the first five months of 2012, total visitor arrivals increased by 10.0% and visitor spending increased by 16.8% compared to the same period in 2011. The increase in visitor spending was primarily due to strong growth from international visitors. Hotel occupancy and revenue per available room also continued to improve. Statewide seasonally adjusted unemployment was 6.4% in June 2012, compared to 8.2% nationally. For the first six months of 2012, the volume of single-family home sales on Oahu was relatively unchanged from the same period in 2011, while the median price of single-family homes sold was 8.7% higher compared to the same period in 2011. Single-family home inventory on Oahu continued to shrink and was at approximately four months as of June 30, 2012. More information on current Hawaii economic trends is presented in Table 15.
