GDP per Capita and Population Data for the Provinces of Thailand

Updated May 2021. Last data available (predicted) for 2019.

Here are the GDP figures for 2019 (predicted values) in all the provinces of Thailand by region (latest data available at NESDC, year 2020). Numbers are Thai baht (real) in 2018.

There may be minor changes in these numbers in the following years. In a sense, recent published data always remain preliminary.

Source : Table of Gross Regional and Provincial Product 2019 (Excel file, available on website), also (to be) published.

Compared to 2018, GDP by Region changed as follows : Bangkok and Vicinity + 3.37 % : Central Region -0.14 % ; Eastern Region 0 % ; Northern Region +3.28 % ; Northeastern Region +2.06 % ; Southern Region +4.11 % ; Western Region +1.79 % ; Thailand as a Country +2.93 %. The data for 2020 may be interesting, to judge how the Covid-19 Pandemic affected the different regions and provinces.

Some observations : Of the 10 provinces with the lowest per capita income, 9 are located in the North Eastern Region. In 2018 Mae Hong Son in Northern Thailand was the poorest provinces, but this 'honor' now goes to Yasothon province (62,623 Thai baht per year). Nong Bua Lamphu and Mukdahan are very closeby.
The difference in between the regions, and in between the provinces in certain regions, are simply astounding.
The average GDP for the whole Kingdom of Thailand in 2019 was 243,787 Thai Baht. FYI, NESDC states that were 69,315 million Thai inhabitants.
Population figures below are the ones estimated by NESDC for 2019. You may find slightly different numbers from other sources.
