Language Diversity

With over one in three residents born outside the United States, Los Angeles County faces unique challenges in delivering services to a disproportionately limited English proficient (LEP) population. Nearly one in three persons countywide are LEP, or face some difficulty communicating in English that impacts their ability to access critical services delivered only in English. Asian and Latino residents are more likely than other residents to face language barriers; 48% of Latinos and 43% of Asians in Los Angeles County are LEP.
