The highest population ever in Qatar, 2,374,860, was recorded on May 31 this year. The year's lowest figures were on July 31, when the population was 2,120,129, mainly because a number of residents were on vacation. Compared to the June figures, there was a fall of more than 224,000 people.
Usually in the months between November and May, the country's population shows a rise every month, except between the end of December and the middle of January. During this period, a large number of residents go overseas.
