The population of Thailand is estimated to be 63,430,000.
The adult age group of 18 to 49 accounts for 69% of the total population, amounting to 43,766,700.
At birth the gender ratio is 50.49% males and 49.51% females but in the adult age group the gender ratio is 49.2% males and 50.8% females. This is no doubt due largely to the road toll.
Based on these figures there are potentially 680,267 Thai women who will not be able to marry/partner with Thai men.
69% of the population are rural dwellers. 15% are Bangkok residents and the remaining 16% live in Thailand's other big cities.
The original United Nations poverty yardstick classifies poor people - people living on or below the "poverty line" as persons whose income is US$1.00 per day or less (42 - 44 baht per day / 1,338 baht per month).
Ultra poor people are persons earning less than 80% of the poverty line income level (for Thailand this is 35 baht per day / 1,070 baht per month).
Almost poor are persons earning between 100% and 120% of the poverty line income level (for Thailand this is 53 baht per day / 1,606 baht per month).
According to a United Nations report issued in 2000, Thailand has 9.8 million poor people, 5.8 million ultra poor people and 3.4 million almost poor people. The total figure is 19 million, or 29.9% of the population, and is concentrated in provinces along the borders in the West, North, and Northeast regions.
