The Population and Housing Census is the collection of data of
the population and their place of residence for everyone who currently resides
in the country. It is equivalent to a photo “snap-shot” on the date of the Census
to show how many people on that date are living in Thailand, where are they living, how many are males/females, children, in the labor force, elderly, disabled, what is their level of education, literacy, unemployment status, occupation, what type of residence do they live in, and how hygienic is that residence, and how often do they move, among other issues.
