In the Executive Summary of this publication, we found the following statement for the year 2018 (latest year data are available for) :

Increased growth in almost all regions. Bangkok and its vicinities showed the highest growth rate at 5.0 %, followed by the North (4.8 %), the West (4.5 %), the South 4.4 %, and the Northeast (3.4 %). The East and the Central Region increased at lower rates of 2.8 % and 1.1 % respectively.

Some observations : Of the 10 provinces with the lowest per capita income, 8 are located in the North Eastern Region. But the poorest province is Mae Hong Son in the North.
The difference in between the regions, and in between the provinces in certain regions, are simply astounding.
The average GDP for the whole Kingdom of Thailand in 2018 was 236,815 Thai Baht.
Population figures below are the ones estimated by NESDB for 2018. For the whole Kingdom, the population in 2018 is estimated at 69.107 million. You may find other numbers at other sources, but we understand there has not been a census for a while.
