This set of "viral maps" was created using data from the U.S. Census Bureau's American Community Survey. It's a fascinating look at the languages spoken in each state other than English and Spanish.


For example, did you know that Vietnamese is the most popular language in Texas outside of English and Spanish or that Navajo is commonly spoken in Arizona and New Mexico? Swedish is the most commonly spoken Scandinavian language in the U.S., and Hindi wins for the most prevalent Indo-Aryan language across all of the states. Kru, Ibo, Yoruba (which the Census lists as a single language) takes first place for the most widespread African language in America.
