The UAE population stood at 9,282,410 in 2020, according to the Federal Competitiveness and Statistics Centre.

The latest statistics showed that men constituted 69.7 per cent of the total population — equivalent to 6,468,460 people — while women made up 30.3 per cent of the total population, amounting to 2,813,950.

While the life expectancy of women stood at 81.4 years, it was 78 years for men.
