The Carsey School of Public Policy’s home is at the University of New Hampshire. We enjoy a rich relationship with organizations across the state as we provide research and programs that build knowledge about families and economic development as well as civic engagement programs that work to strengthen communities across the state.

What is New Hampshire? is a set of facts and simple descriptive text describing where New Hampshire is, where we have been, and what challenges we may face based on our analysis. What is New Hampshire? was originally an annual publication of the New Hampshire Center for Public Policy Studies. When CPPS, unfortunately, ceased operations in 2018, it handed off this publication to the Carsey School. LEARN MORE
