In the countryInfo file in the download section we include a list of languages spoken in the country ordered by number of speakers :
http://download.geonames.org/export/dump/countryInfo.txt

We would like to do the same on the administrative divison level and have therefore started with a spreadsheet. The adm1Lang spreadsheet has the columns : CountryCode, ISO 3166-2 code, FIPS code, Name of the Administrative Division and the list of languages spoken in the country :
http://www.editgrid.com/user/geonames/adm1Lang

An example is Quebec where 80% of the population speak French, compared to the Canada as a whole where only 22% speak French and 68% speak English.

Do you know about administrative divisions where an other language is spoken by the majority of people than the main language of the country? Don't hesitate to add the information to the spreadsheet. The information for FIPS or ISO code can be found on our country page : http://www.geonames.org/CA/administrative-division-canada.html

Is there a table available that lists for all countries:

Country Code, ISO 3166-2 Code, FIPS Code, Name of Administrative Divsion


I realize I can go to an individual country, like Canada, http://www.geonames.org/CA/administrative-division-canada.html
and get this data for one country. I was just looking for finding this data all in one location.

Thank you.
