The situation of the Basque language is rather worrisome.
The region where Basque language is doing better is Gipuzkoa, looking rather stuck in Biscay and Araba and in clear recession in Navarre, where culturally genocidal policies are in practice (the so-called Napartheid). On the possitive side the usage of Basque language in the North (French occupation zone) is showing some quite apparetnt increase among children and youngsters.
Still children are the ones who speak Basque the most overall (19%), while elderly people the less (10%). This is because of the huge cultural-linguistic damage that fascist repression (mostly) caused in the 20th century.
|Basque usage per age groups: children, young, adults, elderly|
Notably Basque language usage is stuck in the cities:
Most of the latest decline is attributable to the growth of third languages, because of immigration and tourism. This pressure is shared with Spanish.
Whatever the case the overall situation is most worrisome: it is too easy to harm a small language and too difficult to heal afterwards.
