In this issue:
Data released earlier this week by the U.S. Census Bureau paints an interesting portrait of the population changes that shaped New Hampshire over the past decade.
A series of maps recently prepared by Center staff illustrate a handful of those data points. They don’t necessarily answer any questions about New Hampshire’s future. But they do raise questions about the policy pressures, challenges and opportunities facing the state in the coming years. The maps, along with analysis and questions to consider, are available as both PDF and a PowerPoint slideshow.
We have also provided a spreadsheet that shows, town by town, changes since 2000 in NH's total population, school-age population, number of housing units and Hispanic population.
The New Hampshire Center for Public Policy Studies is currently seeking applications for the Doug Hall Memorial Internship for Summer 2011.
The intern will work closely with staff at the Center’s offices in downtown Concord on research projects that cover a wide range of policy topics that impact New Hampshire, such as education, environmental resources, infrastructure and the economy. The Center offers interns the opportunity for a flexible schedule and a stipend for their work.
The ideal candidate will be an undergraduate entering his or her senior year, a recent graduate, or a graduate student. Majors in public policy, health policy, sociology, economics, education, or related field are encouraged to apply. Experience with MS Office applications and coursework with statistics is highly desirable. Interested candidates should send a resume, a cover letter expressing research interests, transcripts (unofficial accepted), and one writing sample that demonstrates clear communication and analytical thinking skills. Application deadline is April 29, 2011.
