It seems that many of San Diegans speak Spanish at home. How many? I don't know.

Reffering to official dates:
33% of San Diego County population (above 5yo) use other (than English) language at home. But the average for California is higher - 39.5%.


From Chris (balfor):
There are MANY people in the United States who do not speak
english. It is typically just the first generation of immigrants who do not
speak english though. One thing with spanish speaker that you will find true
throughout the U.S. is if you need landscaping or construction/roofing done,
there will be a large portion of the work force who speaks little or no english.
However they are working VERY hard to make enough money to bring their family to
the U.S. :-) Many of the crews you find like this will have 1-2 people who speak
english and no-one else does, so if you need to talk to someone about the job
they are doing, you need to find the right person.
Thank you Chris.
