Limited Spoken English Proficiency, by State

The American Institutes for Research (AIR) has produced a set of 2-page profiles of the adult education and limited spoken-English proficiency population, for both the U.S. and the states. The profiles include adult education spending and enrollment data plus the population without a high school credential, but the most uniquely valuable data analyze spoken English proficiency by labor force status (employed, unemployed, and not in the labor force — see the symbols at the top of p. 2), gender, age, race, and Hispanic origin. The only source of current information on spoken English proficiency is the U.S. Census Bureau’s American Community Survey (ACS).

AIR has produced these profiles for the U.S. Education Department. The national profile is available at Profile of the Adult Education Target Population, and the data for each state are available at State Profiles of the Adult Education Target Population.

The ACS data can be accessed directly for current and past years — at the national, state, and local levels — at the Census Bureau’s AmericanFactFinder.
