Author(s) Dominic J. Ledesma.

The demographic attributes of Wisconsin's second and third largest linguistic communities, Spanish and Hmong, are highlighted in this statistical and visual tool for understanding the composition of Wisconsin's linguistic diversity. This publication geographically identifies the state's largest concentrations of speakers of languages other than English, provides estimated numbers of limited English proficient (LEP) members within the Spanish and Hmong linguistic communities, and establishes baseline comparisons to estimates for LEP populations elsewhere in the state and nation (8 pages; 2016).
