N.H. foreign-born population growing fast (AP, 6/12/08)

New Hampshire may have a small number of foreign-born residents, but the numbers are growing fast.

Since 2000, the foreign-born population has been growing faster than all but six other states, according to a report released by the Carsey Institute at the University of New Hampshire.

"At the turn of the 20th century, New Hampshire's foreign-born population was significant," said report co-author Ross Gittell in a release. "After nearly a century of decline, New Hampshire's foreign-born population is growing rapidly again at the start of the 21st century."

New Hampshire ranks 25th in the nation in the percentage of foreign-born residents, but first in the percentage of foreign-born adults with four-year college degrees.

...where are the ones who'll actually work for a living?
