Census Report: Nearly Half of Californians Don’t Speak English at Home
Unbridled immigration producing similar results in other states
In California – which with a July 2016 population of 39,250,017 is the nation’s most populous state – 44.6 percent of the people five years of age and older do not speak English at home, according to data released this week by the Census Bureau.
At the same time, according to the Census Bureau, 18.6 percent of California residents 5 and older do not speak English “very well.”
That ranks California No.1 among the states for the percentage of people in both of these categories.
