The Migration Policy Institutes' online journal, Migration Information Source, recently published their latest findings on the population of people with limited English proficiency (LEP) in the U.S.
"In 2011, there were 25.3 million Limited English Proficient (LEP) individuals, both foreign-born and US-born, residing in the United States. Over the past 20 years, the LEP share of the total US population has grown from close to 6 percent in 1990 to about 9 percent in 2011. The total number of LEP individuals has grown by 81 percent since 1990, and has established a relatively large presence in California, Texas, and New York."
