Nearly 60% of Qatar population live in ‘labour camps’

Almost 60% of Qatar’s 2.4mn population live in what the government calls “labour camps”, figures from an April 2015 census showed on Sunday, highlighting the issue of the country’s huge migrant workforce.

The figures from the Ministry of Development Planning and Statistics (MDPS) revealed that 1.4mn people live in what the department officially designates as “labour camps”.
At the time of the survey, the official population was 2.4mn.

That works out at just over 58% of the country’s population. The overwhelming majority — 1.34mn — were male, the statistics found.
