The Hawaii State Department of Business, Economic Development and Tourism has released their calculations for Hawaii’s population statistics from July 1, 2011 through July 1, 2012.

Their figures indicate that as a whole, the Aloha State’s population increased by 14,184 people during that period, which amounts to an addition of 39 people per day.

DBET further indicated that during that year, eight more people per day moved out of the State of Hawaii to other states in the US than moved here.

Although Hawaii saw a net loss of people to the mainland, it saw a net increase in foreigners moving to the Aloha State. DBET estimates that 25 more people per day moved into the State of Hawaii from foreign countries than those who left the State of Hawaii for other shores.

DBET based their calculations on the latest available US census data.
