The population distribution dataset in provincial level of Mainland Southeast Asia (2000-2020) was developed based on the census data in 2000, 2005, 2010, 2015 and 2020 released by the governments of Mainland Southeast Asia (Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Thailand and Vietnam) and the administrative boundary data in provincial level of each of the five countries. The LandScan was used for the data pre-processing. The dataset consists of the total population of 198 provinces from Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Thailand and Vietnam in 2000, 2005, 2010, 2015 and 2020. The dataset was archived in .shp and .xlsx data formats, consisting of 7 data files with data size of 16 MB (Compressed to one file with 8.63 MB).
