According to Collin County records, Native Texans have lost the upper hand, population-wise, in Collin County.
The county is not sure exactly when that happened but the survey puts those born in the Lone Star State at 45 percent in 2006.
But that’s not all that’s happening to the cultural make-up of the county:
- One in five county residents are foreign born, compared to slightly more than 17 percent in 2006;
- About four out of 10 of those foreign born are naturalized U.S. citizens; and,
- A language other than English is spoken in almost one in four homes here, representing almost 150,000 county residents.
