Objectives
IPSR publishes the "Mahidol Population Gazette" in January annually in both Thai and English versions to disseminate estimated population indicators. All figures are updated each year based on the most recent information available. Therefore, the data in the "Mahidol Population Gazette" of different years should not be analyzed to determine population trends.
