After the defeat of the German-Turkish axis in World War I and the subsequent disintegration of the Ottoman Empire, the area of Eretz Israel was mandated by the League of Nations to Great Britian’s care. In 1922, the British undertook the first census of the mandate. At that time, the population stood at 752,048 individuals, including 589,177 Muslims, 83,790 Jews, 71,464 Christians and 7,617 persons belonging to other ethnic groups. The 1922 figures may include both banks of the Jordan river, at least for the non-Jews. Censuses were conducted in the following cities and towns: Jerusalem, Tel-Aviv, Jaffa, Haifa, Tiberias, Safed, Hebron, Petah Tikva, Rishon Lezion, Hadera, Rehovot, and some other small towns and various settlements. By comparing the Petah Tikva census with the Tel-Aviv census, one learns that there was no uniform census format and that the information provided differed from town to town.
Only the census for Petah Tikva* and Tel Aviv-Jaffa** appears on this website at this time. This approximately one fifth of the Jewish population.
