POPULATION
2005 CENSUS &
PROJECTED INCREASE IN
URBAN POPULATION 2030
Prior to 1970, Abu Dhabi Emirate was largely
undeveloped with a population of 46,375 (1968 Census
Data). The increased commercial production of oil
over the past forty years spurred urban development
and industrial growth, which led to a dramatic rise
in population. Census data from 2005 indicate the
population of the Emirate was 1.4 million. By the
end of 2008, Abu Dhabi had a total of 1.57 million
people, and was the most heavily populated of the
seven emirates that make up the UAE. Seventy-ve
per cent of the population are expatriates, while the
remaining twenty-ve per cent are Emirati. A majority
of the population resides in the urban centres of
Abu Dhabi City and Al Ain City; other population
centres are found in smaller towns and cities in the
Western Region such as Madinat Zayed, Mirfa, and
Ghayathi. The population is projected to more than
triple by 2030; these increases will occur mainly in
Abu Dhabi City and Al Ain City, with projected growths
of greater than 3 million and 1 million, respectively.

CENTRAL DISTRICT
Until the middle of the past century, population centres in the Emirate were
restricted to seasonal settlements in and around Abu Dhabi, Dalma Island
and inland at Ghayathi, Liwa and Al Ain. The population consisted of a
number of different tribal groups with their strong ties of kinship and
distinct traditions. The most prominent of these groups were the Bani Yas,
Manasir and Baharinah. In 1904 the tribal population in the Emirate was
approximately 18,000, with settled groups and nomads who would camel
herd, hunt and sh. Nomadism declined, specically among the Bedouin
of the dominant Bani Yas tribe, as the economy in the region diversied.
