LANP

Language Spoken at Home


First release
This variable records responses to the 2006 Census question 'Does the person speak a language other than English at home?', and is coded using the Australian Standard Classification of Languages (ASCL) Second Edition, released in 2005. This question only allows for one answer and therefore the number of responses shown in the category '1201 English' is not all persons who speak English, but specifically persons who speak only English at home.
Applicable to: All persons
