The New Hampshire Union Leader reports on the increase in pandemic-driven relocations as people take advantage of greater flexibility in their work situations. According to Ken Johnson, Carsey School Senior Demographer, New Hampshire is actually seeing an increase in population growth (based on Census data).
Carsey School Research assistant professor Jess Carson reports that families have likely opted out of in-person classes because of "COVID-19 restrictions in classrooms or the prospect of monitoring Zoom classes on remote learning days."
The Lowell Sun recently wrote about U.S. Census Bureau data showing that New Hampshire is one of two (the other being Maine) states in New England experiencing population growth in the last year. The editorial mentions Carsey School of Public Policy Senior Demographer Ken Johnson's research into this population growth trend and suggests some reasons for why the Granite State is attracting people – especially young people – from Massachusetts and other New England states.
