In fact he misuses his own source, Roberto Bachi, who had clearly stated: "The precise magnitude of Arab immigration into and within Palestine is unknown". The immeasurable unreported and undetected illegal immigration during the Ottoman Empire and British Mandate make any estimate nothing more than a bold guess. (It is simply the anti-thesis to From Time Immemorial written a few years before)
McCarthy's book is the first truly un-biased, academic work I've seen on historical population surveys in this region and it is performed by a real scholar on this subject that is not an Arab, not Jewish, or someone with an agenda. It should be considered essential reading on the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.
