These statistics of language of everyday use were of enormous importance in the multiethnic Hapsburg state since they served as a measure of the "nationalist standard of living" and were incorporated as a standard in a wide variety of legislation.
Thus, a significant amendment must be made to the impression left by statistics suggesting that three or four languages dominated among the populations of, respectively, Bukovina and Czernowitz — both figures must be increased by one to include Yiddish.
For Czernowitz, this means that German would have to give up a portion of its leading share in favor of Yiddish.
