CONCORD — New Census Bureau data shows New Hampshire’s population exceeding that of Maine for the first time in 209 years.

Both states have about 1.3 million residents. Estimates released Wednesday put New Hampshire’s population ahead by 6,274 people.

Demographer Kenneth Johnson at the University of New Hampshire says New Hampshire has been growing faster than Maine throughout the decade, gaining 89,000 new residents since 2000 compared to Maine’s 43,000.

Maine also has a much older population and therefor more deaths and fewer births than New Hampshire.

New Hampshire’s growth rate has slowed recently. Migration from Massachusetts, for example, has declined by 34 percent in the last several years.

Saw that on TV earlier tonight. Kind of surprising given the total area of the two states.

It may have declined but I contend it is the source.

The problem is when the Mass-pot-holes hit Maine, they get their Land Yachts up to about 90 on cruise control and only slow down at the Canadian Border....only to keep going on to PEI!!!! The roads are much better there and NH has this issue with Blue Light Weekends, and the below the border folks are too broke to get back over the border to get the tax-ankle bracelet back on before they are caught. :oops: :shock:
