About the North Country
Northern New Hampshire, often called the North Country, includes Coos and Northern Grafton Counties. The North Country suffers from relatively high poverty and population loss as the logging and paper industries decline. However, the tourism industry, in particular visitors who come to ski, snowboard, snowmobile, camp, hike and mountain bike, has helped offset economic losses from mill closures.
Like many rural areas, the North Country is medically underserved. Residents of rural areas face unique challenges in maintaining and improving health. These include, physical distance between people and resources and health issues that come with an older population. Rural residents also must cope with reduced access to care arising from less insurance coverage (due to unemployment in small industries) and provider shortages.
Each town has dealt with the changing economic conditions in different ways and though Northern New Hampshire faces many problems, it remains a region with vast beauty, recreation and community involvment.
