The latest data from the U.S. Census Bureau shows that while states like Connecticut and Vermont were losing residents, New Hampshire’s population growth since 2010 easily outstripped the rest of New England and the second highest in the region. This is both a good sign for the Granite State’s continued economic growth and good news in the competition to hold onto congressional representation in the coming reapportionment.
According to the 2019 census data released Monday, New Hampshire’s population over the decade has grown from 1,316,470 in 2010 to 1,359,711 today, an increase of more than 3 percent. It also rose in population rank from #42 to #41 among the 50 states, falling between Hawaii and Maine.
