Definition: This indicator provides the share of the population that speaks a non-English language at home in the average neighborhood in which each racial group lives, for households of different income groups. For instance, if the value is 10% for affluent blacks, this statistic is interpreted as "The average affluent black household in this metro area lives in a neighborhood where 10% of the population speaks a non-English language at home."

Notes: Household income categories are defined as "poor" (income below $30,000 in 1999), "affluent" (income more than $60,000 in 1999), and "middle income" (those falling in between). Language spoken by those aged 5+. Excludes metro areas with less than 5,000 population of the specified racial/ethnic group.
