Hawaii Economy

Hawaii’s economy continued to improve during the third quarter of 2012 primarily due to increasing visitor arrivals and spending. For the first eight months of 2012, total visitor arrivals increased 10.0 percent and visitor spending increased by 20.0 percent compared to the same period in 2011. The most significant growth continues to come from international markets. During 2012, hotel occupancy and revenue per available room also continued to improve. The statewide seasonally adjusted unemployment rate declined to 5.7% in September 2012, compared to 7.8% nationally. The median sales price for single-family homes and condominiums as well as closed sales on Oahu have increased through August 2012 compared to the prior year.
