The Most Common Language in Each State, Excluding English and Spanish

Even though most business and communications in America are conducted in English, we do not have an official language. And you may be surprised at how many Americans speak more than one language. Business Insider put together a map of the most prevalent language in each state, excluding English and Spanish. Some of these languages have been handed down from ancestors for hundreds of years, while others are due to relatively recent immigrants flocking to areas with other immigrants from the same nations. You might be interested in comparing this map to one we posted in 2014, as there have been some changes.

I'd like to know if there's somewhere that cites the exact number of people who speak the language on the map for each state. After all, once you exclude English and Spanish, there could theoretically be ONE person who speaks, say, Arabic, and that would be represented on the map in the same way it would be if there were 3 million people who spoke that language.
