Analysis of Welsh-speaking ability within households in Wales from Census 2021.

‚ÄčThis statistical bulletin includes estimates of the Welsh-speaking ability of children aged three to four years old by the Welsh-speaking ability of adults in the same household. This provides a possible basis to examine and extrapolate the intergenerational transmission of Welsh (the process whereby a language is transferred from generation to generation through the normal familial interactions of parents or guardians and children). Please note that Census 2021 does not include data on Welsh language use, only ability.
