What Immigration Means to New Hampshire (Infographic)
New Hampshire has a small but growing immigrant community. While only 6 percent of the state’s population was born in another country, foreign-born residents make up a vital, educated share of New Hampshire’s labor force. For example, 44 percent of immigrants in New Hampshire possess a college degree or higher, while 90 percent report speaking English well.
The state benefits from the various ways immigrants participate in the economy—from working as computer and math scientists to accounting for more than 22 percent of New Hampshire’s fishers, farmers, and foresters. As workers, business owners, taxpayers, and neighbors, immigrants are an integral part of New Hampshire’s diverse and thriving communities and make extensive contributions that benefit all.
