Is NH tech employment trend cause for ‘concern’?

A report from CompTIA – the Computing Technology Industry Association – has brought new data to the debate on whether New Hampshire’s tech sector is steadily growing or not growing fast enough.

According to CompTIA’s Cyberstates 2016 Report, New Hampshire tech employment has averaged 1 percent growth every year since 2009, ranking 38th nationally. Just over 400 jobs were added since 2014. In comparison, the country as a whole saw 3 percent growth in 2015 compared to the prior year – “the highest growth rate in more than a decade,” said the report, adding 3,700 jobs.
