Country Demographic Profiles: Thailand.

This profile of the population of Thailand contains 35 tables of selected demographic information, including size of population and estimates of fertility and mortality, beginning in 1950. An adjusted distribution of the population by age and sex is given for the latest census year, as well as for 1976. Projections of the number of women of childbearing age are shown for each year to 1985. Fertility measures include crude birth rates, age-specific fertility rates, and gross and net reproduction rates. Mortality is shown in terms of crude death rates, life expectancy at birth, infant mortality rates, and selected life table values by age and sex. Also presented is summary information on family planning, urban population, marital status, and migration. Other related items are included that are not strictly demographic. These include number and size of households; educational attainment; school enrollment; and labor force by industry, occupation, and status. Also presented are a glossary of terms and a review of sources of the data. (Author/AV)
