Hawaii population up 1 percent, to 1,392,313 residents

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 02:13 a.m. HST, Mar 15, 2013

Hawaii’s population grew 1 percent from July 2011 to July 2012, driven primarily by a relatively high birth rate and people moving from foreign countries, the state said Thursday.

The Department of Business, Economic Development and Tourism analyzed data released today by the U.S. Census Bureau.

The state had a resident population of 1,392,313 on July 1, 2012, compared to 1,378,129 one year earlier. Of those, 70.1 percent live on Oahu.

On average, Hawaii gained 39 residents per day:

>> Fifty babies were born per day, offset by 28 deaths, for a net gain of 22 natural residents.

>> Hawaii had a net gain of 25 people who moved from or to foreign countries per day, offset by a net loss of eight people moving to or from the U.S. mainland, for a net migration gain of 17 people.

Resident population by county on July 1, 2012 was 976,372 in Honolulu County, 189,191 in Hawaii County, 158,316 in Maui County and 68,434 in Kauai County.

“Resident population” includes military members and dependents stationed in Hawaii.

Pretty soon it will be the rich and poor, most of the middle class would either move away or dwindle because of the high cost of living

There should be a huge sign in the middle of the island that has a capacity limit on it like in all buildings. 1.4 million? I'd jump for joy if 0.4 million were cut out somehow. This island would be a much better place with just 1 million residents.

1.4 million includes all islands. Oahu is still under 1 million as of today.

According to my calculations, only 10 percent of our population elects the people who will represent 100 percent.

People should come to Hawaii only to visit and spend their money. They shouldn't come here to live and relocate. How many stories do we hear about homeless coming to Hawaii because they thought its a great place only to find the high cost of living.
