New Futures has just released their latest PolEcon report: The Corrosive Effects of Alcohol and Drug Misuse on NH’s Workforce and Economy, November 2014. The following is an excerpt. Find the full report at www.new-futures.org.
“By far the greatest cost of substance misuse in New Hampshire is in the form of lost productivity of individuals in the state who are dependent on or who abuse alcohol or drugs. Productivity losses attributable to substance misuse cost the state about $1.15 billion in 2012. The productivity impact of drug and alcohol misuse on the New Hampshire economy is so significant that the problem must be considered in the context of the impact it has on the long-term prospects for the New Hampshire economy. Decades of above average economic growth in the state have more recently been replaced by nearly a decade of below average economic growth in the state. Much of the responsibility for slower economic growth can be attributed to slower growth in the number, skills, and education of working age individuals in the state, to all of which substance misuse contributes. By reducing the number of individuals in New Hampshire’s labor force and by decreasing the skills and productivity of individuals who are in the labor force, substance misuse in NH exacerbates key demographic and human resource issues that contribute to slower economic growth in the state.
A plateau in New Hampshire’s labor force is creating a structural drag on employment and capping job, income, and spending growth in the state. Alcohol and drug misuse reduces the size of New Hampshire’s labor force. The large substance misuse related reduction in the productive capacity of the New Hampshire labor force means that substance misuse is correctly viewed not only as a public health crisis but also as an economic policy issue. Increasing the productive capacity of NH citizens while limiting the costs of the substance misuse in the state can enhance the long-term growth prospects for the New Hampshire economy.”
