The Upper Valley of New Hampshire and Vermont
offers diverse employment and pace of life
The Online Physician Job Bank And Magazine
Here is a quote from the article:
"Simply put, most people who live in the Upper Valley area
of New Hampshire and Vermont consider themselves
to be thoroughly spoiled. The region is rich in everything you'd
ever want: small town life, lots of four-season outdoor
activities-summer's hiking trails become winter's
cross country skiing trails-a surfeit of culture, great food,
unique shopping possibilities, intellectual stimulation,
and last but not least, friendly people..."

Upper Valley Stewardship Center
The Upper Valley Stewardship Center is an alliance of educators,
natural resource professionals, and landowners dedicated to
collaborative management of a 2000 acre campus and advancing
stewardship, outdoor recreation, and experiential education
in the Upper Valley region of New Hampshire and Vermont.
Through our activities, we hope to nurture a culture of
environmental awareness, physical and mental fitness, healthy
communities, and long-term sustainability of the Upper Valley’s
natural and cultural resources.
The Stewardship Center represents the landholdings of six
different ownerships: Upper Valley Stewardship Center,
Oliverian School, Joan Wolter, JCSCR LLC, Oliverian Recreation
Association, and the Wolter Trust. In collaboration with
the Mount Prospect Academy, East Haverhill Academy,
and Mountain Valley Treatment Center, these landowners
have formed an alliance to forward a set of commonly held
goals and values. Such cross-boundary collaboration allows
the alliance to: share resources and professional experience;
maintain a diverse four season trail system; coordinate and
share management costs; ensure a steady stream of sustainably
harvested forest and agricultural products; and manage for
wildlife and water quality at the landscape-scale. While each
landowner ultimately determines the fate of their property,
the alliance provides an open forum to share ideas and
solicit input on management activities and challenges.

Here are a few excerpts:
The Upper Valley area of New Hampshire
and Vermont is a dynamic, scenic and
prosperous place to live and work. It is a center
of innovation for both New Hampshire and
Vermont and hosts healthcare and educational
facilities that are among the best in both the
region and the country. The Upper Valley
area of New Hampshire and Vermont being
examined is also deﬁ ned as the Lebanon
NH-VT MicroNECTA. At the edge of the
southern border is Cornish, New Hampshire
and Windsor, Vermont; Piermont,
New Hampshire is at the northern border.
Major cities and towns in the area include
Lebanon and Hanover, in New Hampshire, as
well as Hartford, Vermont. The area is well
served by major roadways; Interstate Highways
89 and 91 merge in White River Junction and
provide access to the area. The Upper Valley
area straddles the Connecticut River, and is
connected by several bridges, which integrate
New Hampshire and Vermont.
The Upper Valley is home to Dartmouth College,
Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center, and the White
River Junction Veterans Administration Medical Center.
These institutions are beacons of the local economy
and the community. The Upper Valley has a variety
of job opportunities, low population density, plenty
of recreational and shopping activities, an airport, and
excellent healthcare services. In addition, wages in the area
are higher than statewide rates of either state. Overall,
the Upper Valley is known for being a nice place to live
and work. The areas low unemployment rate reﬂ ects the
strong economy in the Upper Valley, and is consistently
lower than the statewide rates of both New Hampshire
The Upper Valley is an excellent example of the
OnTheMap capability. Industry employment, wages,
education levels and worker demographics are some of the
variables a user can examine using OnTheMap. For this
OnTheMap analysis, both the Upper Valley and selected
towns within the Upper Valley are examined.
Lebanon, Hanover and Hartford are the
three largest towns in the Upper Valley by
population. Two of these towns, Lebanon
and Hanover, are also the employment
centers of the region, meaning that more
workers commute in than commute out of
the towns. All towns have residents who live
in the town and travel elsewhere for work,
and populations of workers who commute
in to work in the town. There are also
persons who both live and work in the same
town. Worker earnings, education levels
and workers industries can vary depending
on where the worker lives or works. The
towns of Lebanon and Hanover, being
the employment centers of the region, are
Residents living in the Upper Valley hold
33,035 primary jobs
The area covers several
towns and cities in both New Hampshire
and Vermont, including Lebanon and
Hanover, NH and Hartford, VT. The
Lebanon MicroNECTA itself contains
42,856 primary jobs. There are about
10,000 more jobs in the area than there are
residents holding jobs.
There are 14,249 working residents living
on the Vermont side of the border, and
18,786 working residents living on the
New Hampshire side. Of residents both
living and working in the Upper Valley,
9,681 live on the Vermont side of the
Upper Valley, and 12,917 live on the
New Hampshire side. Nearly one-half of
job holders living on the Vermont side commute into
New Hampshire (48.1 percent), while only 9.8 percent of
job holders living on the New Hampshire side commute
into Vermont. Nearly 90 percent of job holders living on
the New Hampshire side of the Upper Valley area remain
in New Hampshire for work.
While the Upper Valley
is well integrated in its housing, recreation, healthcare
and other amenities, the area's employment is primarily
based on the New Hampshire side of the border. The
transportation infrastructure linking the two sides of the
river allows for easy commuting between the two states
and provides the skilled workers living in Vermont the
ability to travel into New Hampshire for work.
