Population change exerts a significant impact on communities, families, and institutions. Demography is not destiny, but researchers and policy makers ignore it at their peril. At the Carsey School of Public Policy, we seek to delineate the population change underway in communities and to analyze the demographic forces that cause it, using the latest data. We also consider the consequences that demographic change has for the environment, communities, and families in both rural and urban areas. Our analysis of demographic change and the implications it has for New Hampshire, New England, and the United States contributes to the informed policy making needed to address the complex problems that population growth and decline produce.
