Footnote(s)

Footnote 1

The category 'Total - Single and multiple mother tongue responses' indicates the number of respondents who reported each language, either as their only response, or in combination with another language. Total responses represent the sum of single mother tongue responses and multiple mother tongue responses received in the census.

A single mother tongue response occurs when a respondent provides one language only.

This is a total population count. The sum of the languages in this table is greater than the total population count because a person may report more than one language in the census.
