Fw: Literacy Austria Hungary #hungary

The literacy map in question dated 1884 of Austria and greater Hungary is based on the census of 1881? Examples are: Budapest over 80%, Miskolc 60-70% and Debrecen 70-80%. The submitter asks what language was used? In my view the census in Austria would have been done in the local German dialect and in Hungary in Hungarian. It is doubtful that any census takers would have spoken Yiddish.
