! Interpret data with caution. The coefficient of variation (CV) for this estimate is 30 percent or greater.
1 Total includes other racial/ethnic groups not shown separately in the figure.
NOTE: Respondents were asked whether 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 using the following categories: "very well," "well," "not well," and "not at all." All children who were reported to speak English less than "very well" were considered to have difficulty speaking English. A Spanish-language version of the American Community Survey (ACS) was available to respondents. Race categories exclude persons of Hispanic ethnicity.
