All data is drawn from government survey results and is subject to any associated limitations or distortions present in the source data. Literacy was measured as the ability to read and write in any language. Languages with population shares less than 0.01% or under 1,000 people (whichever is greater) have been aggregated into the “Other” field. As a data protection measure, the language dataset provider, IPUMS, has merged various second administrative units in order to provide spatio-temporally harmonized units that meet their 20,000 All decimal values have been rounded to a maximum of 3 decimal places. As a result language shares may not total 100%. Empty values represent non-existent data and should not be treated as zero values.
