Smart places, getting smarter: facts about the young professional population in New England states

Heather Brome

No 09-1, New England Public Policy Center Discussion Paper from Federal Reserve Bank of Boston

Abstract: Each of the New England states is wrestling with how to retain a skilled workforce and sustain economic competitiveness while facing an aging population. In particular, each state fears that it is losing young, educated workers to other states and regions. This paper builds on earlier research about trends in the region?s young professionals: it looks at the supply of young professionals in each state to better understand trends in that population. The analysis reveals that, while there are some differences between the New England states, all are facing slow growth or no growth in its population of young professionals.
