A survey of ESL in ten counties of north central Indiana
Based upon a study of a ten-county area of north central Indiana, this paper attempts to report the national origins of the residents, and more specifically those people whose native language is other than English. The paper describes all the English-language programs offered to those people whose English is deficient. The ten counties surveyed include Carroll, Cass, Clinton, Grant, Howard, Madison, Miami, Tippecanoe, Tipton, and Wabash, For each county census figures from the 1980 census are given. In Howard County a more in-depth study was made of nationality or language groups to find where the people are employed, what they do, and language problems encountered.
