UAE population to rise in 2010 to 7.5million
2010-01-24 18:07:33
WAM Abu Dhabi, Jan 24th, 2010 (WAM)--The National Human Resources Development and Employment Authority (Tanmia) has projected that the UAE population would rise in 2010 to 7. 557million from 5.63million, increasing by 1.9million people as per the official population statistical report issued in 2006.

It added that the UAE population doubles every 8.7 years compared to 55 years for world population.

Tanmia released in its report, of which Emirates News Agency (WAM) obtained a copy, that, the growth of both UAE nationals and expatriates would lead to exacerbation of the demographic imbalance in the country. It cited that the percentage of the UAE nationals' increment to the population growth dropped from 24.4 per cent to 15.4 per cent from 1995- 2006.

It predicted that the population would further drop to 13.3 per cent in 2010, if appropriate correctional procedures and policies were not taken to address the issue.

The report noted that non UAE national males' domination was considerably reflected on the UAE population, bringing the males' percentage in the country's population to over 66.6 per cent in 1995 and to 72.2 per cent in 2006.
