Of the 70,300 people who came over to Qatar last year, more than 42,500 were men, while the number of women was a little over 27,750, the QSA said. As for the overall population in 2011, more than 1.27 million were male, whereas only 436,562 were female, with the male-female ratio continuing to be highly tilted in favour of men.
In the year 2010, the size of the male population was 1.22 million, while that of the female was 408,808. It is important to note that the presence of larger numbers of men in the country is due to the employment of large numbers of low-income single workers, mainly in the construction and contracting sectors.
Well, that explains why the roads, hospitals and malls are more crowded than ever!
