Qatar’s migrants: how have they changed the country? | News | theguardian.com

Qatar has become almost unrecognisable from the tiny nation it once was. We look at the data to find out how migration changed everything and what happens when a nation swells so quickly.

The real answer lies in Qatar’s migrant population, otherwise bluntly referred to in government statistics as ’non-Qataris’. In terms of rights, migrants might not be powerful - but in numbers they are.

’Qataris’ in work: 71,076
’Non-Qataris’ in work: 1,199,107

That means immigrants make up an astounding 94% of Qatar’s workforce, and 70% of it’s total population.
