Many people question how many people actually live in Pattaya and Thailand.

The true numbers have been hard to calculate because Thais were only counted if they were living where they were registered. Foreigners were not counted at all. For example Pattaya has an official population of 92,000 people but more than 200,000 Thais live and work here and an estimated 80,000 foreigners are living here at any given time. In September, the National Statistical Office conducted a ‘Population Census’ which is a method of counting everyone residing in Thailand, including the expat population.
