Hawaii pop grew 1 percent from mid-2010 to mid-'12

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) A state analysis of new U.S. Census data shows Hawaii's population grew by 1 percent per year in the two years spanning July 2010 through July 2012, with growth distributed relatively evenly throughout the islands.

The analysis released Thursday by the research division of the state Department of Business, Economic Development and Tourism Department said Hawaii gained people through births and immigration. At the same time, the state lost population through deaths and people moving to other U.S. states.

Officials say the population breakdown among Hawaii's counties remained the same in 2012 as in 2010. Honolulu County accounts for 70.1 percent of the state's population, while Hawaii County has 13.6 percent, Maui County has 11.4 percent and Kauai County has 4.9 percent.

On average, Hawaii gained 39 people per day.
