Forecast: Slow, steady job growth expected in New Hampshire

The Associated Press

CONCORD (AP) — A new economic forecast shows New Hampshire will see continued job growth through 2024 but it will be slow going.

New Hampshire Public Radio reports the forecast was made by New Hampshire Employment Security. The agency issues employment projections every two years.

The latest study projects the state will gain more than 47,000 jobs between 2014 and 2024. Nearly all of those are expected to be in service industries.

The agency says many of those jobs will be in health care and social services. Economists also expect growth in professional and technical services.

The number of manufacturing jobs is expected to drop by about 1 percent, but economists say the demand for workers in that field should stay high.

The study expects an average annual growth of less than 1 percent.
