census-message-logo

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

In Redland Bay, 44 people who were able to speak another language in 2016, reported difficulty speaking English.

Proficiency in English measures the self-assessed proficiency in spoken English of people who speak a language other than English at home. The data, when viewed with other ethnic and cultural indicators, such as Ancestry, Country of Birth, Language Spoken at Home and Religion, reflects Redland Bay's ethnic composition and how long the overseas born have been in Australia. This helps service providers determine whether they need to communicate with the local population in languages other than English.

Derived from the Census question:

'How well does the person speak English?'
