What did you say?
Speaking of ethnic and cultural diversity, but this time focusing on patients, I thought you might be interested to see the difference in the distribution of languages served by our staff interpreters between 2001 and 2008. Note, for example, the reduced percentage of Russian-speaking patients and the increase in Spanish-speaking patients. Anyone want to offer theories about why these or other changes have happened? Is this just random variation, or does it reflect some other cause during this eight-year period?
The "other" category also shows some interesting changes. See below.
