In a positive sign for New Hampshire’s economy, the state gained more than 6,200 residents in a year’s time despite more deaths than births, according to new U.S. Census figures.

“In a state where deaths now exceed births, migration is critical to New Hampshire’s future,” said Ken Johnson, senior demographer at the Carsey School of Public Policy at the University of New Hampshire.

The state relies on people moving here from other states, partly to provide fresh workers for a growing economy.
