In Thailand's hospitals, when a child is born he or she may receive a delivery certificate that documents the event of birth. The delivery certificate states simply that a child was born to a specific hospital, and it has no bearing on the legal status of the child. Birth certificates are awarded only to Thai citizens.

The data presented by these figures accounts for all age cohorts. It is possible that the process for gaining or proving Thai citizenship has changed throughout the course of some survey respondents’ lives.
