December 1994 figures
a See Hadawi, App. VI, p.230. This area includes public land, concessions, other transfers. Area duly registered is about half, or 3.6% of Palestine.

Cf Survey of Palestine report to the Anglo-American Committee on Palestine at 1,392 sq.km., correcting for Turkish donums.

Zionist sources: Granott: 1,588 sq.km., Y. Weitz map: 1731 sq.km., both include concessions.

See Hadawi, App. VII, p.242.

Based on compilation of individual village ownership, see Abu-Sitta. Also see Hadawi, App. VIII, p.247, 248.

No change from 1994 figures, although some may emigrate, typically 17%.

Existing (1994) and returning refugees (4.476 million), although some may not return but still hold the right to return.
