“Poverty in Thailand is primarily a rural phenomenon. As of 2013, over 80 percent of the country’s 7.3 million poor live in rural areas. Moreover, an additional 6.7 million were living within 20 percent above the national poverty line” (Socio-economic survey. 2013)
As a result, it was largely concentrated in the North and Northeast regions, both in rural and urban areas. Although the number of the poor has decreased in recent years, the overall rate remains high. The main reasons for such high rate of poverty are a lack of opportunities, low income or unemployment. The country is economically affected by the problem of poverty. However, there are good signs that something might get better.
