Child population by race-ethnicity in New Hampshire
Why This Indicator Matters
While New Hampshire has dramatically lower racial-ethnic diversity than observed across the nation, the trends in New Hampshire mirror those across the United States: the child population is more racial-ethnically diverse than the adult population. The state as a whole was 90.8 percent white in 2016 with an estimated 122,161 non-white residents (9.2 percent). The youngest children—those under age 5—had the highest share non-white at about 15.5 percent of their total population in 2016. Seniors over age 65, on the other hand, were just 3.5 percent non-white.Racial-ethnic diversity also varies dramatically across the state. The least diverse county in the state in 2019 was Sullivan, where 92.2 percent of children are white, while in Hillsborough—home of New Hampshire’s two largest cities, Manchester and Nashua—76.6 percent of children were white in 2019. Non-White Hispanic or Latino children make up the largest share of the non-white population across New Hampshire counties, ranging from 2.8 percent of the total population in Carroll to 11.1 percent in Hillsborough in 2019.
