Hispanic Family Facts: Language use among Latinos is changing
The U.S. Hispanic population is changing—not only in size and national origin but in language use, according to a report by the Pew Research Center.
A record high number of Latinos reported being proficient in English in 2015. Among Hispanics ages 5 and older, 35 million reported being English-proficient, and 14 million reported speaking only English at home. Among Latinos born in the United States, roughly 90 percent reported being proficient in English, versus 35 percent of foreign-born Latinos.
