HAWAII GENUINE PROGRESS INDICATOR (HI GPI)
Hawaiʻi’s Genuine Progress Indicator (HI GPI)
The Genuine Progress Indicator (GPI) is an indicator of economic welfare representing the costs and benefits of economic activity. While GPI is expressed as a single annual number, it can be decomposed into its constituent parts, which consist of indicators related to the economy, as well as social and environmental change. Looking at total GPI from years 2000 to 2020, Hawaiʻi genuinely progressed on average 1.5 percent each year.
