2010 Census: NH grew 6.5 percent (DAN TUOHY, 12/21/10, New Hampshire Union Leader)
New Hampshire grew the fastest rate of any state in New England over the past decade, according to 2010 Census population estimates released Tuesday.Posted by Orrin Judd at December 22, 2010 6:10 AM
The state population of 1,316,470 was a 6.5 percent increase over the official head count in 2000. [...]
[Kenneth Johnson, professor of sociology and senior demographer of the Carsey Institute at the University of New Hampshire,] said the region's population gain was due to an excess of births over deaths and that many more people left New England than came to it during the decade. Since 2000, New Hampshire had 45,000 more births than deaths, according to Johnson's study of recent census estimates.
