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.

At this time, we do not have a good estimate of when it will become available. However, once it is, you will find a note of its release here.

Unfortunately, we are still working on this variable. It is difficult to estimate exactly when it will be released, however, we expect to release LANGUAGE in the next couple of months. Once it has been released, a note will be made here.

Is there an estimate of when the 2016 LANGUAGE field will be available?
