The numbers above are based on Ethnologue estimates. These are significantly out of date; most are nominally from around the year 2000, but some are based on extrapolation from data significantly before then. Since 2000, it can generally be assumed that the larger populations have grown and the smaller ones have shrunk. In the 1980s and early 1990s, there was also significant refugee movement of populations near the border from Guatemala into Mexico, so generally the Mexican numbers above for the cross-border populations are lower than reality. The numbers generally reflect a relatively broad definition of language speakers, leading to somewhat higher numbers than other contemporary estimates.
Overall, there are probably more Mayan speakers today than the sum of the numbers above, due to population growth.
