Poll answers

Gulf News has two pages today giving the results of a YouGov Siraj poll. It talks about the cost of living, rents, salaries, savings and so on.

It confirms that for many people Dubai is no longer the place to make and save money.

Forty-two percent said they either save nothing or their debt increases.

Sixty-six percent said their rent had increased by over ten percent - so much for the rent cap.

But the figure that stood out to me was in answer to the question: "Approximately how long have you lived in the UAE".

Two percent answered "Don't know".


All the figures are here.

Kind of makes you wonder about the accuracy of the poll if 2% of the respondents don't even know where they live...
