Under 1 million Non Thai? A bit surprised as I would have thought the Non-Thai number to be a bit higher

The Migrant number of close to 5 Million has been well publicized over the course of time.

Less than 1 Million is a nonsense.

A lot of the data is questionable I guess, given the current situation. Many migrant workers went home over the last 2 years. Many seem to be keen to come back to work but are finding it hard work just getting in to Thailand. Still no clear route.

How do they know when they never conduct a Census ?   There are a lot of 'Invisible' people in Thailand including thousands of Thai Nationals who don't want to be found.   Looks to me like another number taken from the TAT files !

The data set they're using is from 2011. The Worldometer figure as of today is over 70m total living in Thailand.

As for the migrant population, last UN figures were for 2018. Total just under 5m.

The above is a huge pdf file, but on page 11 you'll see the breakdown of the immigrant population back then.

Most sites use 68-69+million, and more believable, IMO  Surprised about the 1 m non Thais, though not sure what they are using.  Before Imm stated 1/2 mill on long term visas, and would have thought they'd have the accurate # for obvious reason.

The majority of overseas immigrants here are not us expats, who constitute only a very small percentage of the total, but the workforces from Laos, Cambodia, and Myanmar, and disparate groups such as hill tribe people, who only get a pink card. From the 2018 UN document, there were nearly 5m all told. Probably shrunk significantly over the last 2 years. Now there's a chronic labour shortage here.
