Forecast Project

The UHERO Forecast Project provides the Hawaii community with analysis of economic, demographic, and business trends in the State and the Asia-Pacific region.




The primary activity of the UHERO Forecast Project is the interpretation and projection of statistical and other data on the changing economic and business environment in the State, its four counties, and principal external economies. Summaries and analyses are disseminated through forecast reports, and public fora. UHERO develops and maintains high-frequency industry level statistical models of Hawaii, its four counties and key external economies to support rigorous forecasting exercises. The quality of the forecast program is enhanced by academic peer review and publication.
