What is New Hampshire? - Presentations
- Measuring New Hampshire in 2013 (01-04-2013)
The coming year promises a long list of weighty policy debates in New Hampshire: a new round of state budget negotiations, possible expansion of the Medicaid program, and continued uncertainty about the state and national economies.
The following eight charts aren’t a definitive guide to New Hampshire’s public policy landscape in 2013. Rather, we intend them to provoke questions about some of the challenges facing the state – in the areas of health care, economic growth and public education, among others – in the coming months.
