New Hampshire Center for Public Policy

The New Hampshire Center for Public Policy Studies announced on Friday that it is closing its doors after 22 years, citing a lack of funding.

The Concord-based non-profit produced in-depth reports on a wide range of issues impacting life in the state, from casinos and the corrections system, to health care, pension funds and school-dropout rates.

An economist says New Hampshire state revenues are showing signs of leveling off.

Greg Bird of the New Hampshire Center for Public Policy Studies says there's been a marked slowdown in the growth rates of four state taxes: business profits, business enterprise, meals and rentals and real estate transfers.

He says the other 15 revenue streams that feed the state's General and Education funds have remained static for the past 2 1/2 years.

The latest economic report from the New Hampshire Center for Public Policy Studies says 2016 will bring New Hampshire some of the strongest economic growth it’s seen in the last few years.

A New Hampshire Center for Public Policy study predicts the state's aging population will reshape its health care system.

The center's annual report, titled "What Is New Hampshire," says that by the year 2020, nearly 20 percent of the state's population will be 65 or older, a dramatic jump from 13.5 percent in 2010.

The report also notes that the economy is changing significantly.

The U.S. Census Bureau estimates New Hampshire’s population grew by only .1% last year. That’s fewer than 2000 people added since 2012. That’s among the slowest rates of growth in the nation.

This is something that we want to make sure we’re continuing to monitor yearly to ensure that there’s current information out there for the public. We look forward to a dialogue with the hospital association in ways of developing best practices— how can we improve the process.
