1998 Nakhon Ratchasima's total population was 2,579,286. The
most crowded area was in Muang Khorat with population of 483,191.
Along with the Thais inhabiting Khorat, there is a sizeable
population of ethnic Laotians owing to large-scale migration
in the nineteenth century. Even though there were many Khmers
living in this area in the past and the province absorbed
many Khmer art and cultural influences, most of Khorat's people
still speak Thai with a central dialect.
