Definition: Estimated percentage of children ages 0-17 living in households in which (i) no person age 14 or older speaks English only, and (ii) no person age 14 or older who speaks a language other than English speaks English very well (e.g., in 2014-2018, 9.8% of California children lived in limited English-speaking households).
Data Source: Population Reference Bureau, analysis of U.S. Census Bureau American Community Survey microdata files (Jan. 2020).
Footnote: Estimates are for children living in households and exclude those in group quarters. Data are displayed for geographies with at least 10,000 people based on 2018 population estimates. These estimates are based on a survey of the population and are subject to both sampling and nonsampling error. The notation S refers to estimates that have been suppressed because the margin of error was greater than 5 percentage points. N/A means that data are not available. Some regions listed are Census Designated Places (CDPs), such as East Los Angeles; CDPs are communities within the unincorporated part of a county. In 2010 the Census Bureau implemented new population benchmarks, so caution should be taken when comparing 2005-2009 data with later years.
