DURHAM, N.H. – Ken Johnson, senior demographer at the Carsey Institute and professor of sociology at the University of New Hampshire, is available to discuss the latest New Hampshire and New England census data to be released this week by the U.S. Census Bureau.

This week, the U.S. Census Bureau anticipates releasing local-level 2010 Census population counts for a number of states, including New Hampshire, Massachusetts, and Maine. The Census Bureau will provide summaries of population totals, as well as data on race, Hispanic origin and voting age for multiple geographies within the jurisdictions, such as census blocks, tracts, voting districts, cities, counties, and school districts.

The Carsey Institute at the University of New Hampshire conducts research and analysis on the challenges facing families and communities in New Hampshire, New England, and the nation. The Carsey Institute sponsors independent, interdisciplinary research that documents trends and conditions affecting families and communities, providing valuable information and analysis to policymakers, practitioners, the media, and the general public. Through this work, the Carsey Institute contributes to public dialogue on policies that encourage social mobility and sustain healthy, equitable communities.

The Carsey Institute was established in May 2002 through a generous gift from UNH alumna and noted television producer Marcy Carsey. For more information about the Carsey Institute, go to www.carseyinstitute.unh.edu.

The University of New Hampshire, founded in 1866, is a world-class public research university with the feel of a New England liberal arts college. A land, sea, and space-grant university, UNH is the state's flagship public institution, enrolling 12,200 undergraduate and 2,300 graduate students.
