(Not) Born in the U.S.A.

REGION

The number of Framingham residents born in another country has grown over the past five years from about 14,000 in 2000 to over 16,000 in 2005, according to a recent survey by the U.S. Census Bureau. About 6,000 of those residents entered the U.S. after 2000, according to the survey.

In Newton, the foreign-born population dropped during the same period, from 15,000 to about 13,700.
