General description
This dataset provides information on how often people aged 3 or more say that they speak Welsh, by local authority. These percentages sum to the total percentage who report being able to speak Welsh.

Frequency of publication
Quarterly

Data reference periods
2007 to 2019

Rounding applied
Figures are rounded to the nearest 100 and so there may be some apparent slight discrepancies between the sum of constituent items and the totals as shown.

Statistical quality
As the data come from a survey, the results are sample-based estimates and therefore subject to differing degrees of sampling variability, i.e. the true value for any measure lies in a differing range about the estimated value. This range or sampling variability increases as the detail in the data increases, for example local authority data are subject to higher variability than regional data.
