NH has gained back half the jobs lost in recession

In Ocober 2012, New Hampshire had a labor force of 739,820 people of whom 701,270 were holding jobs, according to NHES. This compares to October 2008, just before the impact of the Wall Street debacle, when New Hampshire had a slightly higher labor force — 741,570 people, of whom 713,760 were working.
