Footnote(s)

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.

A multiple mother tongue response occurs when a respondent provides two or more languages.

Footnote 4

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.
