Home language use

Written By: markkaiser on April 29, 2010 No Comment

I came across interesting data on home language use (hat tip, Rich Robin) here:

A few highlights:

  • Of all the states, California has the highest percent (42%) of the population speaking a language other than English at home.
  • In the US the top ten languages spoken at home are (in order) Spanish, Chinese, French, Tagalog (!), Vietnamese, German, Korean, Russian, Italian, Arabic.
  • Nationwide, 80% of the population speaks only English at home.
