Palestine Censuses of 1922 and 1931 for Ness Ziona, Israel #israel #records

We know absolutely nothing about the families of my husband's great-grandparents, who arrived in the US with their children in 1908.  However, I have located a ship manifest listing them as going to Ness Ziona in Palestine in 1928 to visit a "parent".  The Wikipedia article on Ness Ziona mentions two censuses done there by the British Mandate authorities in 1922 and 1931.  Can anyone tell me what form these censuses took?  Were they just headcounts, or did they actually list household members by name?  If the latter, can anyone tell me where they would be available to view?  It would be exciting if I could learn something about the relatives of these great-grandparents in this way!  Also, if anyone knows of any other types of records from that time frame that would have been kept in Ness Ziona and might still be extant, I would love to know about them.  Thank you.
