Staff Answer

Due to changes in the 2016 ACS questionnaire, LANGUAGE will be released at a later date. It depends on the purposes of your analysis if these alternatives will work or not, but the variables SPEAKENG (whether the respondent speaks only English at home, and also how well the respondent, who speaks a language other than English at home, speaks English) and LINGISOL (an identifier of "linguistically isolated households") are available for the 2016 ACS sample.
