Good Call – Marisa Sanfilippo

“Census Bureau data represent the most comprehensive evaluation ever of languages spoken in the United States. Previous data sets only included information on 39 languages, while the latest results gathered information on 350 languages. In the New York Metro area alone, the data reveal at least 192 languages being spoken at home, with 38 percent of the population older than 5 speaking a language other than English at home. In the Los Angeles metro area, 185 languages were identified and 54 percent spoke a language other than English at home.”(more)
