While Qatar’s population has grown to 1.65 million this year, the Qatar Statistical Authority (QSA) is today launching a pilot census in preparation for the country’s General Census of Population, Housing and Establishments to be conducted in April 2010. According to QSA, the country’s population grew 6.5 percent to 1.65 million in the first five months of the year, starting from December. The population grew from 1.55million people at the end of September. The Qatar 2010 Population and Housing Census is the largest and most comprehensive statistical field operation to be implemented in Qatar. It aims to provide detailed data and information on: the economic, social and demographic characteristics of the population; housing conditions; household composition and conditions, and building statistics and their characteristics. The massive amount of statistics and information will be collected in accordance with the latest United Nation’s recommendations and also meet the requirements of ministries, planners, researchers, scholars and decision makers. Technology will be used to furnish summary data to data users a short time after field operations are completed.
