About the population of the Brazilian isles.
The closest one can get to an "evidence" is probably through the "ISLAND
DIRECTORY" of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP)
The page with Brazilian isles:

>From this page I extracted:

Fernando de Noronha; population: 1266 (in 1980)

Listed as inhabited, but population not stated:
Ilha de Maraca
Ilha da Santa Barbara
Ilha de Santa Catarina
Ilha de Sao Luis
Penedos de Sao Pedro e Sao Paulo
Ilha de Sao Sebastiao

(Probably) not inhabited:
Ilhas Martin Vas
Atol das Rocas
Isla da Trindade

One can also check:
But not all isles are listed.
