Constraints on New Hampshire’s workforce recovery: Impacts from COVID-19, child care and benefit program design on household labor market decisions


The onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in March 2020 changed the economic landscape of New Hampshire and the employment decisions faced by its households. Accordingly, the study was expanded to include additional analysis of unemployment conditions and reasons for unemployment relative to the pandemic, and to analyze child care availability and affordability, and the ways in which the pandemic had broadened the impact of child care as a constraint to work. This expansion of the scope of the analysis and incorporation of detailed datasets on unemployment claims and child care supply and demand over the course of the pandemic enabled the research team to develop a more comprehensive picture of the workforce constraints impacting New Hampshire’s households and its economic recovery.
