Number of citizens in older age groups is lower compared to expatriates: statistics

KUWAIT CITY, Aug 29: Official statistics showed that citizens from one year old to 29 years old outnumber the expatriates; but the number of citizens in the older age groups is lower compared to the expatriates, reports Al-Rai daily. The latest statistical report from the Central Statistics Bureau revealed that 862,171 out of 1,420,836 citizens belong to the age group one to 29 years old or 60 percent of the total; compared to the number of expatriates in the same group – 685,585 out of 2,796,064 or 24.5 percent.

On the other hand, the number of citizens in the older age groups is lower than the expatriates as 105,417 citizens belong to the age group 30 to 34 years old compared to 148,989 expatriates. In the age group 35 to 39 years old, the number of citizens is 89,932 compared to 352,477 expatriates. In the 40s age group, the number of citizens is almost six times that of their expatriate counterparts; as the number of citizens in the 40 to 44 years old group totaled 73,841 compared to 426,758 expatriates and 71,620 citizens in the 45 to 49 years old group compared to 423,968 expatriates.
