Qatar grows by another 160,000 people since last September

Qatar’s population has returned to pre-summer vacation levels and is getting close to breaking another all-time high record, according to new government figures.

There were 2,347,000 people in the country at the end of September, the Ministry of Development, Planning and Statistics said on its website.

That’s nearly 160,000 more people than were in Qatar at the same time last year, and about 58,000 more people than were here at the end of August.

Though the influx may make the roads and other parts of the country feel more crowded than ever, the figures reflect the smallest year-on-year increase Qatar has seen in 2015 (7.3 percent).

Most other months have seen 9 or 10 percent jumps in population when compared to the same time last year.
