Note: In the census, people identify which language(s) they can hold a conversation about everyday things in. Languages spoken includes all people who stated each language spoken, whether as their only language or as one of several. Where a person reported more than one language spoken, they were counted in each applicable group.

This data has been randomly rounded to protect confidentiality. Individual figures may not add up to totals, and values for the same data may vary in text, tables, and graphs. The accuracy of percentages may be affected by this rounding, particularly for ethnic groups with small populations.
