Too many speakers

Dear Ethnologue Team, I frequently looked at your information on the Berta language in Ethiopia, and only realized now that the number of speakers of Berta in Ethiopia must have a 'zero' too many. According to the latest cencus in Ethipia in 2007, the number of speakers at that time was approximately 200 000. (I don't think it is 8 times as much now... :) ) A website you chan check is: Ethiopia Population and Housing Cencus 2007, Then look in the report on Benishangul-Gumuz Region, p. 39. Thank you. Susanne

Editorial Action

We have replaced the speaker population figure for Berta [wti] in  Ethiopia with the actual 2007 census figure.  This information will be included in our next edition.
