Monthly Economic Indicators (MEI) through December 2018 was released on February 1, 2019.  

Note: Due to the lapse in Congressional Appropriations for Fiscal Year 2019, the U.S. Department of Commerce/U.S. Census Bureau had been closed. They have since reopened and their websites recently updated for the Kauai County building permit data for November 2018. The MEI 2018-12p has incorporated that data and will be updated with the December 2018 as soon as possible after release by the U.S. Census Bureau.

Monthly Economic Indicators (MEI) through January 2019 will be released on/about March 8, 2019.

NOTE:  Today’s MEI 2018-12p data will be available via Current Economic Conditions and Data Warehouse as the upload protocol permits.
