Dubai’s tourism and population increase considerably

Dubai seems to have maintained the rapid rate of growth, widely reported in February. The new Q1 results for Dubai show the emirate has gained an additional 31,000 inhabitants in just 3 months. This now means Dubai’s population is 1.938 million however this is only a fraction of the emirate’s daily footfall.

The Dubai Statistics Centre (DSC) has revealed that Dubai’s active population now exceeds 3 million people during the day. In addition to the 1.9 million residents there are 1.07 million workers who enter the emirate everyday on business.

This figure increases further when tourism is taken into account making the daily population swell by an additional 56%. This news comes in conjunction with a report by The Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing (DTCM), that shows Dubai’s hotel establishments served over 8,684,387 guests in 2010. When this increase in visitors is added to the increases across all types of holiday accommodation it was revealed that Dubai hosted over 26.6 million tourists last year; a staggering increase of 17% on the year before.

LOL.

(1.9m+1.07m)*0.56 = 1.66 million tourists at any one time?

I think not.

There are not a million tourists in Dubai at any one time.

It's an utterly ridiculous claim.

9.5 million tourists came last year, this plus the hundreds of thousands who come to Dubai for business everyday from other cities means an additional one million visitors in addition to the 1.9 million residents is very much possible.

No. It is not.

Again- this is what the article claims:

Quote:
The Dubai Statistics Centre (DSC) has revealed that Dubai’s active population now exceeds 3 million people during the day. In addition to the 1.9 million residents there are 1.07 million workers who enter the emirate everyday on business.

1.9 million residents.

1.07 million workers entering every day on business.

That makes 3 million.

Then, the daily population (3 million) "swells by an additional 56%" due to tourism.

You state that 9.5 million tourists came last year. A total of 9.5 million.

If the daily population was swelled by 56% (1.68 million), then to reach that annual figure, they'd have to stay for an average of 65 days each on holiday.

Assuming an average of 2 people per room, it would require over 800,000 hotel, serviced apartment, and holiday home bedrooms to accommodate those tourists.

Do you know how many hotel rooms and serviced apartments there are in Dubai?

65,000.

Run that number the other way.

Assume an average of 2 per room.

If 9.5 million tourists visited in a year, that would put the average stay at almost exactly 5 days. Much more realistic.

And therefore tourist numbers on average of around 130,000 at any one time.

The number of tourists (hotel guests) who came last year varies between 8.5-9.5 million from what I have read. The assumption you have made is incorrect. Not all visitors stay in hotels. Infact, the vast majority don't stay in hotels. The total number of visitors to the city (hotel guests and others) was 26.6 million.

Nope.

The figures being thrown around are very much real.
