Saudi Arabia Life

The population of Saudi Arabia is composed mainly 82 % of Arabs whose ancestors have lived in the area for many centuries. A substantial minority of 13% consists of Yemenis and other Arabs who came to Saudi Arabia after the 1950s because of the economic opportunities the country afforded. Nomads, known as Bedouins, make up a declining proportion of the population, and the number of settled residents has also decreased.

The national language is the Arabic language, however English is widely spoken in business circles.

The majority of Saudi Arabians are Sunni Muslim, but Shia Muslims predominate in the Eastern Province.
