Number of households in Thailand 2013-2021

The number of households in Thailand was forecasted to be approximately 18.2 million in 2021, compared to 18 million households in 2016.

Rural Population in Thailand

Thailand’s rural population mostly resides in the rice-growing regions, i.e. the central, northeastern, and northern regions. In 2018, approximately 34.75 million people lived in the rural area, which accounted for 50 percent of the total population in Thailand. Nevertheless, Thailand’s rural population is declining as it has been over the past nine years.

Urban population in Thailand

As Thailand has transformed into a more industrially orientated country, urban living and city life seemed to follow the development. Thai rural inhabitants started to migrate to urban areas and bigger cities such as Bangkok, as there were more job opportunities. Therefore, urbanization became a reality in Thailand, with the urban population accounting for 50.05 percent of the total population in 2019.
