 CEO Message Welcome to the electronic gateway of the Dubai Statistics Center (DSC)

At DSC we strive to provide the best electronic services in the provision of databases and statistics on the emirate of Dubai. These sources of data and statistics are the basis of planning and decision making by the government leadership and business community. Our statistical information and databases also support academic activity and scientific research, and all those who are interested in statistical information in the emirate of Dubai.

Through the DSC website, we present demographic, social, and economic statistics produced by censuses and field surveys conducted by DSC, in addition to data supplied to us from other sources on a regular basis. All our operations in the compilation of statistical databases and construction of indicators are carried out according to the highest international standards. 

We recognize that achieving excellence in statistical work in one of the fastest growing cities in the world is not easy. We also realize that rapid growth at the sectoral level poses huge challenges. But we also know that the emirate of Dubai, under the leadership of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates and Ruler of Dubai, is only satisfied when Dubai is No.1. Whatever many cities have not succeeded in achieving, Dubai has succeeded. This is reflected in the vision and strategic direction of the DSC, and our primary objective is to support the Dubai Strategic Plan (2015), perhaps one of the most ambitious plans ever.

I invite you to surf our site to benefit from our unique services which will be developed and updated on a regular basis. Do not hesitate to send us your feedback and comments which will always be taken into account to enrich the content and of our services.

I would also like to express my gratitude and appreciation to our partners such as government ministries and departments, government agencies, and many private sector institutions whose cooperation is one of the cornerstones of our success. Many thanks also to individuals and families in Dubai for their close cooperation with DSC.
