More detailed information about Welsh speakers’ fluency, and their use of Welsh in a range of settings, is available Welsh Language Use Surveys.

The first survey on people’s use of the Welsh language was carried out in 1992 and was called the Welsh Social Survey. In 2004-06 the Welsh Language Use Surveys of 2004-06 were conducted (commissioned by the Welsh Language Board). The most recent Welsh Language Use Survey was carried out in 2013-15. This was jointly commissioned by the Welsh Government and the Welsh Language Commissioner.
