The Modern Language Association Language Map
A Map of Languages in the United States

MLA Language Map is intended for use by students, teachers, and anyone
interested in learning about the linguistic and cultural composition of
the United States. The MLA Language Map uses data from the 2000 United
States census to display the locations and numbers of speakers of
thirty languages and three groups of less commonly spoken languages in
the United States. The census data are based on responses to the
question, ""Does this person speak a language other than English at
home?"" The Language Map illustrates the concentration of language
speakers in zip codes and counties. The Data Center provides census
data about over three hundred languages spoken in the United States,
including actual numbers and percentages of speakers. "
