Twenty-two percent of the U.S. population ages 5 and older do not speak English at home, according to a report from the Migration Policy Institute.

The share was highest in Nevada – at 31 percent – and Florida at 29 percent. Spanish was the top language spoken at home in the country overall followed by Chinese, Tagalog, Vietnamese, and Arabic.

Approximately 44 million immigrants live in the U.S., and that number will continue to grow, according to the U.S. Census Bureau, which projects net international migration will be the main driver behind U.S. population growth between 2027 and 2038.

The number of immigrants in America increased by 9 percent between 2010 and 2016, and grew by 15 percent or more in that time frame in 15 states: North Dakota, West Virginia, South Dakota, Delaware, Nebraska, Minnesota, Wyoming, Pennsylvania, Alaska, Indiana, Florida, Nevada, Washington, Iowa, and Maryland.

Mexican immigrants were the largest origin group in the 15 states followed by Cubans. The report revealed a new trend in migration where immigrants settled in different parts of the country, and not just in clusters.

The report also showed immigrant adults in those 15 states had higher levels of education than U.S. immigrants overall, and immigrants in many states were highly represented among all workers in low-skilled jobs.
