Higher earning ability linked to education
There is a direct corelation between education and a person's ability to earn, according to a survey by the National Statistical Office of Thailand.
The higher the education levels of Thais, the higher their earnings, the survey showed.
Disparity of income is a major problem in Thailand and it is attributed mainly to education.
“The higher the level of graduation, the higher the income," the survey shows, linking educational level with earnings.
In 2019, people who earned the highest salary in Thailand were those with doctoral degrees. Their average salary was Bt44,078 a month.
People with no education in Thailand received only Bt6,362 a month, seven times lower than people with a PhD.
