Does anyone here have immigration data for French Algeria?

I'm curious as to how many Europeans--and from which countries--came to Algeria at various points in time. For instance, was the flow of European immigration into Algeria at its peak in 1913-1914, or did it already peak at an earlier point in time?

Anyway, does anyone here know where exactly I can find this information?

I also want to use this information to try speculating on what Algeria's demographics would have looked like in the absence of the World Wars.

Well, it wasn't considered "immigration" !

Not just nitpicking, it's simply true. So if You search "immigration to Algeria", most likely You will not find a lot.

These could put You on the trail (but it's in French, ... a bit logical ;) )

Thanks for this link! I will make sure to check it out! :)

BTW, movement from European France to Algeria was just migration whereas movement from, say, Italy or Spain to Algeria was immigration. AFAIK, most pieds-noirs in Algeria were either Italian or Spanish (though there were some French people and also Algerian Jews).

For what it's worth, a helpful user on another forum directed me to this article:

La population de l'Algérie - Persée

This article is written in French and contains what I am looking for. :) Now, I can calculate the pied-noir percentage in Algeria at various points in time and try to project the direction of this growth in the absence of the World Wars.
