The number of Berber-speakers in Tunisia has been disputed for a long time. The last census to include a question on language was the one conducted in 1956, which recorded that 1,275,000 people (24% of the population) spoke Berber languages at home. However, many Tunisians speak an Arabic dialect and French as well as having knowledge of Tunisian Arabic; this is why some argue that it is not accurate to say that only 24% are native speakers today. Some sources claim there are 2 million Berbers in Tunisia while others give estimates ranging from 30–50%. In any case most recent studies show between 10–20 percent still speaking their ancestral language fluently or regularly including about 3 million non-Tunisian ethnic berbers living within the country's borders who came from Algeria and Libya during several waves starting with French colonization period until present day . According to Ethnologue report , there were around 1 million speakers out of 16 millions inhabitants (6%) before 2011 Census .
