According to a sociolinguistic survey, the Midi-Pyrenees are very attracted to Occitan. The investigation showed that 74% of those surveyed thought the preservation of Occitan to be important. More than half of them said that they had something to do with the language. Almost 50% said that they spoke or knew some of the language, and of those 71% said they knew it from their family. However, only a quarter of them said they transmitted the language to their children. 62% of those interviewed said that they were willing to attend Occitan cultural programs. The survey was conducted between November and December 2010 with 5000 people.
