How We Determined The Cities In New Hampshire With The Largest Native American Population For 2019

We still believe in the accuracy of data — especially from the census. So that’s where we went to get the breakdown of race across New Hampshire.

That lead us to the Census’s most recently available data, the 2013-2017 American Community Survey data from the US Census.

Specifically, we looked at table B03002: Hispanic OR LATINO ORIGIN BY RACE. Here are the category names as defined by the Census:

  • Hispanic or Latino
  • White alone*
  • Black or African American alone*
  • American Indian and Alaska Native alone*
  • Asian alone*
  • Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islander alone*
  • Some other race alone*
  • Two or more races*
* Not Hispanic or latino

Our particular column of interest here was the number of people who identified as American Indian and Alaska Native alone.

We limited our analysis to places with a population greater than 2,000 people. That left us with 40 cities.

We then calculated the percent of residents that are American Indian and Alaska Native. The percentages ranked from 2.25% to 0.0%.

Finally, we ranked each city based on the percent of American Indian and Alaska Native population with a higher score being more American Indian and Alaska Native than a lower score. Newport took the distinction of being the most American Indian and Alaska Native, while Wolfeboro was the least Native American city.

ok I agree I live in berlin and I’ve lived here since the day I was born there is murder, drugs, weed, overdose, teen pregnant, and I’m 13.

I know someone’s gonna say your to young to understand, but because I live here and have self raised myself with a druggie mom and no dad on the planet I can say I know enough and probably more than you.
