Nearly a quarter of American households do not speak English as their first
language, a new study published on Tuesday has found.

The Migration Policy Institute
<https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/washington-secrets/22-of-us-population-does-not-speak-english-at-home>
discovered
that 22 per cent of the US population prefers to speak another language at
home, with the highest concentrations located in Nevada and Florida
<http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/florida/index.html>.

'Spanish was the top non-English language spoken at home in the country
overall and in the 15 fastest-growing states with one exception: Alaska,
where Eskimo‚ÄďAleut and other Native American languages predominated,' the
report found.

The Washington, DC-based think tank also noted in their study that the
number of foreign-born US citizens represents 13.5 per cent of the
population

The Washington, DC-based think tank also noted in their study that the
number of foreign-born US citizens is at its highest level ever, with
approximately 44 million immigrants calling America home.

The number translates into 13.5 per cent of the population.

The data also suggests a trend showing immigrants dispersing across the
country instead of gravitating to a few states and cities.
