Qatar has grown by more than 212,000 people in the past 12 months, with the population reaching an all-time high at the end of May, according to newly released government figures.
That’s about 28,000 more people than were here at the end of April, which was another record month.
However, it is not likely that the population will cross the 2.6 million mark any time soon.
However, expect the population to rise again at the end of September, once Eid Al Adha is complete.
Government officials have previously said the number of people inside of Qatar will hit a high around the middle of next year due to various construction projects before beginning to taper off.
