Want to know how many people speak Yiddish or Creole in your neighborhood? The Modern Language Association's new Language Map displays the locations and numbers of speakers of the 30 languages most commonly spoken in the United States. You can search by language and state and the tool produces a map of how many people speak that language by county or zip code.
The maps are based on data from the 2000 census' long form, which was filled out by one in six households, so the results are not exact or current -- but they give you a good idea as to how prevelant languages are in local areas.
Thanks to Morris Digital Works' Manager of Product Strategy Ken Rickard for the tip.
