According to the 2002 National Survey of Latinos, 46%
of Hispanic adults speak both English and Spanish (see
Figure 1), meaning that they report an ability to carry
on a conversation in either English or Spanish at least
About 40% are largely Spanish speakers,
and 14% are largely English speakers. Given that there
were approximately 25 million Hispanic adults in the
spring of 2002 (U.S. Census Bureau 2003), this suggests
that there are roughly 11 million adult English/Spanish
speaking bilingual Latinos.
The remainder of the adult
Hispanic population either possesses strong English or
Spanish speaking skills, but not both.
