The American Immigration Council recently released data on NH’s immigrant population and their contributions to the Granite State.

Immigrants in the state have also paid $598 million in federal taxes and $170.6 million in state and local taxes in 2014. Of NH’s immigrant population, 38, 334 were women, 35,555 were men, and 6,070 were children in 2015.
