Provides information about Welsh speakers' use of the Welsh language for July 2019 to March 2020.

The analysis reports how often Welsh speakers speak the language, how fluent they are and when they started learning to speak the language. It also includes data for the national indicator regarding use of the Welsh language.

This report presents the initial findings of the Welsh Language Use Survey 2019-20. The survey ended earlier than planned due to the coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19). More information on the implications of this, and the consequent limitations of the data (including a lack of estimates at local authority level) can be found in the quality and methodology information section.

We intend to publish the survey’s remaining results in separate statistical bulletins, according to theme, combining data from the National Survey for Wales 2019-20 where relevant.
