Language Links Missing[edit]

I notice the language links are missing. I checked the other states and they have the language links. These links are usually on the left side under languages and a gear cog symbol which is under page information. I'm not equipped with the knowledge to fix this but I'm sure some one reading this could fix this213.94.147.120 (talk) 14:52, 11 October 2015 (UTC)

Looks OK to me (and there have been no recent changes to the article). Can you look again? -- Rick Block (talk) 16:22, 11 October 2015 (UTC)

Alternatively, you can add {{nobots|deny=InternetArchiveBot}} to keep me off the page altogether. I made the following changes:

Ancestry Groups (Under Demographics / Population)[edit]

According to this section:

The largest ancestry groups in Wyoming are: German (26.0%), English (16.0%), Irish (13.3%), American (6.5%), Norwegian (4.3%), and Swedish (3.5%).

However, it also lists the Hispanic/Latino population at around 9%. Given that there probably aren't a lot of people of Puerto Rican or Cuban ancestry, I would have to think that 'Mexican' would at least come in above 'Swedish' and possibly also 'Norwegian' and 'American' - I tried, but couldn't locate any sources that meet Wikipedia's rules. Can anyone help on this? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 59.24.247.59 (talk) 04:38, 6 September 2015 (UTC)

This page, http://factfinder.census.gov/faces/tableservices/jsf/pages/productview.xhtml?src=CF, doesn't even include Mexican as one of the top 27 responses in Wyoming for ancestry in the 2000 census. It would probably be included 18.9% listed as other ancestries. Either most people who identified as hispanic in the 2000 census did not respond to the questions about ancestry, or Wyoming's hispanic population comes from a diverse national background and is not mostly Mexican as you suspected.
All of the other numbers you gave seem accurate in the report, though the fact-finder does not report any value for 'American' ancestry and I cannot find any government published article from that census that would suggest this values is correct (it was my understanding that those who identified themselves as having 'american ancestry' were from the upper south). If the 'American' statistic is still in the article I will check the citation, and delete it if necessary. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Cincotta1 (talkcontribs) 20:05, 18 March 2016 (UTC)
