The increase in Dubai's population from the beginning of this year until the end of March almost about 30 thousand and 31 people.

Knowing that Dubai population at the end of the first quarter of last year had reached about three million and 353 thousand and 900 people.

The individual number in Emirate during the rush hours reached almost about 4.5 million. Besides, the original residents of Dubai, there are about one million people who visit  Dubai temporarily for business or tourism.

According to the center, it is important to calculate the movement of individuals present during the rush hours, alongside the original residents of Dubai, to determine the needs that are necessary in infrastructure, security services and other services.

One of the main reasons for Dubai's population growth is that Dubai is a global economic city attracting investors, expertise, and various categories of employment, which is exceptionally reflected in the rate of population growth.
