Communities & Consequences II: Rebalancing New Hampshire's Human Ecology by Peter Francese and Lorraine Stuart Merrill (Portsmouth, NH: Peter E. Randall, 2020).
New Hampshire’s age structure urgently needs rebalancing before shortages of workers cripple economic growth and impede our ability to care for the rapidly growing numbers of older residents. More than the increase in people over 65, the concern is the decreasing numbers of children and young people. Nationally school-age children outnumber seniors, but our state now has 22% more residents age 65 or older than children ages five to 17. This book and companion documentary film by Jay Childs describe how we got here, and how visionary local leaders are crafting strategies to restore balance, and build thriving intergenerational communities. -- Publishers blurb.
