What is this Indicator?
This indicator shows the percentage of households in which every member aged 14 years or older has some difficulty speaking English.
Why this is important: 
Households that are linguistically isolated may have difficulty accessing services that are available to fluent English speakers. The language barrier may prevent such households from receiving transportation, medical, and social services, as well as limit employment and schooling opportunities. In cases of national or local emergency, linguistically isolated households may not receive important notifications.
Technical Note:  The distribution is based on data from 3,143 U.S. counties and county equivalents.
