UAE Population

UAE Population is one of the most diverse in the Middle East:

National population - 22% (Non-UAE sources think it is more like 15%)
Arabs from other nations (about 20 other countries) - 20%
Bangladeshi and Pakistani - 55%
Westerners and East Asians - 10%

The nationality of a person seems to largely be correlated with your position level and job opportunities:

Emirati male and females - Government Employee/White Collar
Bangladeshi, Pakistani, Indian males etc. - Manual Labor
Westerner - White Collar/Professional positions
Philipino, Ethiopian, Sri Lankan, Indian, Bangladeshi, Indonesian Woman - Housemaid/Nanny
