1%, Yes, my first language was not English.   
5%, Yes, one or both of my parents spoke a first language that was not English.   
21%, Yes, one or more of my grandparents spoke a first language that was not English.   
23%, Yes, one or more of my great-grandparents spoke a first language that was not English.
