Percentage of elementary and secondary school students who spoke a language other than English at home and percentage who spoke English with difficulty, by race/ethnicity: 2007
NOTE: Respondents were asked if each child in the household spoke a language other
than English at home. If they answered "yes," they were asked how well
each child could speak English. Categories used for reporting were "very well,"
"well," "not well," and "not at all." All those who
reported speaking English less than "very well" were considered to have
difficulty speaking English. Includes those students who are age 5 or older. The
percentages shown are of the total population for that particular race/ethnicity.
Race categories exclude persons of Hispanic ethnicity.
