Footnote 4

The category 'Total - Knowledge of languages: single and multiple language 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 language responses and multiple language responses received in the census.

Footnote 5

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

Footnote 6

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

Footnote 7

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.
