The workshop on 7-11 November 2022, was jointly organized by NESDC Thailand, the United Nations DESA, and UNFPA Thailand. 

The objective of the workshop was to provide an introduction to stochastic methods of demographic projections, to present the Bayesian probabilistic approach, and in particular the models being used for the development of national population projections of the United Nations Population Division. Through a series of lectures and practical exercises, participants learnt how to calculate population projections in R. Discussions focused on the use of stochastic projections as a complement to scenario-based forecasts.

Participants from NESDC, the Thai NSO, FPO, academia, UN agencies in Thailand, Lao Statistics Bureau, ESCAP, United Nations Department of Social and Economic Affairs, and UNFPA Thailand joined the workshop.
