Portsmouth, NH-ME Metropolitan NECTA Employment Analysis

( Data Date : April 2019 )

New Hampshire Employment Data

Located in the New England region, the Granite State has been known for high levels of educational attainment, a competitive tax structure, relatively low poverty rates, and proximity to the Greater Boston economic market. Currently, the trends shaping the “new” New Hampshire are declining rates of in-migration and an aging workforce, a shift away from the high-growth economic model of the past, and continued demand on the state budget for public services.
