An Artful Look at Dubai's Employment by arohib

Dubai is known to be home to several expats who come here to make their livelihoods. While looking at a country's attractiveness and in order to make decisions to move and/or settle in a place, a majority of people also look at employment related statistics. Keeping that in mind, I looked at Dubai's workforce divided by age-group, total number of employees and their skill levels.

An in-depth look at 1,445 data points for five years from 2015 to 2019 including gender, age-group, occupation, skill level and total count can show us some important statistics. In Dubai, the largest group of the workforce is between the ages of 30 to 34, 25 to 29 and 35 to 39, while the least amount of workers come from the age group 65 to 69.

Employment skill levels are categorized in 5 groups i.e. professional worker, specialist, skilled worker, technical and limited skills worker. Given this categorization, the data visualization tells us that workers with technical skills are usually the least in all age groups except between the ages of 30 to 34. Additionally, more than half of the workforce between the ages of 25 to 29 and 30 to 34 are considered to be limited skills workers.
