Negotiating national identity: immigrants, minorities, and the struggle for ethnicity in Brazil. Table 3, p. 49. (the original source, reported in the book, is Revista de Imigração e Colonização 1, n. 03 (July 1940): 617-638.) The total figure, 107,135, includes some non-Arabs, such as Armenians (826). Notice that while most Middle Eastern immigrants fall under "Turks", this is actually a misnomer, as it refers to the passport (of the Ottoman Empire) used by Levantine immigrants in their arrival to Brazil.
