I referred to Jerusalem being 84 percent Arab in 1946 according to the latest less loaded map I published. On the map, "Jersualem" refers to a large area that includes Jerusalem and a great deal of what is now the West Bank as well, as you can see from the map, not the city itself. My apologies for the confusion. In 1946, Jews were a majority of the inhabitants of the city itself, and had been since the 1870s or so.
