In this issue:
The Center this week published the latest edition of "What is New Hampshire?", our annual compilation of graphs and data on the people, strengths and challenges of the state. For this year's edition, we've added a new selection of interactive maps which illustrate much of the data upon which the full report is based. You can examine changes in the state's population from 1960 to today, and compare communities across a range of demographic measures, including education, income, median age, and other indicators. The maps are intended to give users a more hands-on way of understanding the state's communities and its people. Let us know what you think!
Visit our website, nhpolicy.org, to catch up on some of our latest work, including Policy Notes on recent state pension reform and analysis of the new state budget. We also post copies of all our presentations to outside groups, including Director Steve Norton's recent presentation to the Manchester Chamber of Commerce on the changing face of New Hampshire and his talk at Dartmouth-Hitchcock's "Mapping the Aging Maze" conference.
For more regular updates of our new publications, presentations and products, join us on Facebook or Twitter. In addition, our blog, www.PolicyBlogNH.org, offers another forum for the free and open exchange of opinions and commentary on policy issues facing New Hampshire.
Our main website also offers an RSS Feed, which allows you to easily stay informed by retrieving our latest content. Go to www.nhpolicy.org, click on Topics, Newsletters, or Press Room, and then click the RSS feed button at the top of the page.
