Maps of Languages People Speak In The U.S.

 The Census Bureau has released interactive maps of the United States, which show the concentrations of people who speak a language other than English at home.

According to the data, 58% of U.S. residents age 5 and older speak English “very well” and also speak a language other than English at home.  Of those, almost two-thirds of those people speak Spanish (37.6 million), followed by Chinese (2.9 million), Tagalog (1.6 million), Vietnamese (1.4 million), French (1.3 million), German (1.1 million), and Korean (1.1 million).

California leads with the highest percentage of people who speak another language than English at home with 44%, while West Virginia has the lowest, with 2%. Laredo, Texas, leads as the city with the highest percentage, 92%.
