Qatar Population 2017

[[getCurrentPopulation()]]

Qatar's population is a bit unknown, as the Qatar Statistics Authority estimated that the population was 1.9 million in 2013, with other sources claiming 2.03 million. Regardless, the population has tripled in the decade up to 2011. Qatar (Arab) nationals make up less than 15% of the total population, followed by other Arab (13%), Indian (24%), Nepali (16%), Fiipino (11%) and Bangladesh and Sri Lankan (5% each). There are 250,000 Filipinos in the country, making them the third largest group of expatriates. Due to a huge influx of male laborers, women account for just 25% of the population.
