Limited English‐Speaking Individuals
According to the 2021 American Community Survey, between 2017 and 2021, there were 101,826 individuals in Kentucky ages 5 and over who spoke English “less than very well.”
Even though most individuals in the U.S. speak English at home, there are many who speak other languages. In addition, while there are many people who speak another language and have no difficulty with English, there are still individuals who speak English “less then very well.”
The Census Bureau measures English proficiency for individuals who are ages 5 and over. Additional information on Limited English Proficiency is available at https://www.lep.gov/
For counties with small populations and small population groups within larger counties, the margins of error can be quite large. The margin of error tells us how precise the estimate is by indicating the range within which the estimate most likely falls. For help in understanding the margin of error, see the brief Kentucky: By The Numbers publication “And Now for the Grain of Salt.”
