NH population projected to increase 8.8 percent by 2040 due to migration
New Hampshire's population is projected to increase by 8.8 percent by 2040 from the population at the 2010 census.
The New Hampshire Office of Energy and Planning (NHOEP) has released new population projections for the state, its counties and its towns up to the year 2040. This would result in the total population to be 1,432,730 in 2040.
The projected number of births is expected to decline slightly over this time period, from 66,000 between 2010 and 2015 to 65,000 between 2035 and 2040. The projected number of deaths is expected to increase sharply, from 56,500 between 2010 and 2015 to nearly 96,000 between 2035 and 2040.
This means that the projected rise in total population between now and 2040 will be due to continued migration into the state, according to NHOEP.
