Definition: This indicator provides the share of the population that speaks a non-English language at home in the neighborhood where the average child of different racial/ethnic groups lives. For instance, if the value is 10% for Hispanic children, this statistic is interpreted as "The average Hispanic child in this metro area lives in a neighborhood where 10% of the population speaks a non-English language at home."

Notes: Language spoken by those aged 5+. Children defined as those under 18. Excludes metro areas with less than 5,000 child population of the specified racial/ethnic group.
