ECONOMIC STATISTICS IN BAHRAIN

Auther : Dr. Badawi Khalil Moustafa

 

         This paper provides detailed information and assessment of economic statistical sources together with their applications in the State of Bahrain.  Three major subject headings are included dealing with: population censuses, statistics of consumption and statistics of foreign trade.

         Five enumerations of the population of Bahrain were carried out respectively in 1941, 1950, 1959, 1965 and 1971.  The Statistical Bureau of the Ministry of Finance and National Economy supervised the full-court census of April 1971 in the eight administrative divisions of Bahrain.  The final return of this census gave 216078 as the total population figure with some 82% indigenous and an annual rate of increase of 2.88%.   The paper deals with preliminary analysis of a number of census tables pertinent to: density, migration, sex and age composition employment, education and marital status.

          As regard the assessment of statistics dealing with consumption, methods for measuring the standard of living were outlined and an analysis of the national income per person and the household budget was made.  The itemization of consumption by age has made possible the derivation of important pointers to the rationalization of consumption.

          Statistics related to foreign trade were finally appraised on the basis of commodities in their geographical distribution, and their main sources and destinations.  The paper included quantitative analysis of both the imports and exports of Bahrain for the primary target of estimating the international exchange rates and the impact of foreign trade on the national economy and the realization of economic welfare.
