Sinhala (or Sinhalese) is the language of the Sinhalese ethnic group in Sri Lanka, and spoken by around 74% of the population in Sri Lanka. It is also spoken by tens of thousands in each of Australia, United Arab Emirates, the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom.

Territory size shows the proportion of all people who speak Sinhala as a first language that live in that territory.
