Mapping Other Languages Spoken at Home

The Washington Post has a cool map on its website showing counties in the US where at least 10% of the population speaks something other than English at home. If you click on the map below, you can see that most of the counties where this is the case are in the southwest portion of the country, with pockets in the northwest, in Florida and along the northeastern seaboard. Oh, and then there's Oneida County in upstate NY !
