Diversity Tips (3)

What languages do they speak at home?

It seems that many of San Diegans speak Spanish at home. How many? I don't know.

Reffering to official dates:
33% of San Diego County population (above 5yo) use other (than English) language at home. But the average for California is higher - 39.5%.

From Chris (balfor):
There are MANY people in the United States who do not speak
english. It is typically just the first generation of immigrants who do not
speak english though. One thing with spanish speaker that you will find true
throughout the U.S. is if you need landscaping or construction/roofing done,
there will be a large portion of the work force who speaks little or no english.
However they are working VERY hard to make enough money to bring their family to
the U.S. :-) Many of the crews you find like this will have 1-2 people who speak
english and no-one else does, so if you need to talk to someone about the job
they are doing, you need to find the right person.
Thank you Chris.

Where were they born?

It seems that like in many other USA cities there are many newcomers living in San Diego including people coming from abroad.

Why do people move to San Diego? (job, beautiful area, weather) Why not more? (high costs of housing, high taxes?)

Reffering to official dates 21.5% of San Diego County citizens were born outside USA (in the whole California it's even more: 26.2% - SURPRISED?).

Mixed population?

Walking around San Diego you can see people of various races but mostly - no doubts about it - Whites (66.5%).

Many people think that San Diego is the most populated by Mexicans city of the USA. Hmm... not at all.
There is higher percentage of persons of Hispanic/Latino origin in the whole California (32.4%) than in San Diego County ("only" 26.7%).
