This topic has been updated with 2016 Census data for all areas. What's this?

Devon Meadows's language statistics show the proportion of the population who speak a language at home other than English. They indicate how culturally diverse a population is and the degree to which different ethnic groups and nationalities are retaining their language.

Devon Meadows's language statistics should be analysed in conjunction with Country of Birth and Proficiency in English to assist in identifying specific cultural and ethnic groups in the area and the services required by the multicultural community.

For more information see notes on data confidentiality.

Derived from the Census question:
