New U.S. Census estimates show New Hampshire has achieved its largest annual population gain in more than a decade, though the numbers don't compare to the booming 1980s and 1990s.

For many years, New Hampshire was the fastest-growing state in the Northeast, largely due to people moving in from Massachusetts. But that domestic in-migration slowed in the last decade since the recession.

New Hampshire had the highest median income of any state in the U.S. in 2016. 

 

According to the latest income data released by the U.S. Census, the state's median household income last year was over $76 ,000, which is 30 percent higher than the national median.

 

The typical New Hampshire household earned $35,000 more a year than the typical household in Mississippi, which is the poorest state in the country.
