Abstract This study explores the effects of natural disasters on inequalities in Thailand – both income and expenditure inequality – at a micro level. The analysis uses a unique survey panel and remote-sensing dataset constructed for the objectives of this research. It contains provincial inequality measures and other economic and social indicators based on the Thailand Household Survey during the period between 1992 and 2019. Besides, the remote-sensing data on natural disaster is received from several sources using GIS software. Employing a panel fixed effects estimation, the key finding of this study shows that natural disasters significantly decrease household income and expenditure inequality as measured by the Gini index. These results are robust across heterogeneity of the samples, lagged effects of natural disasters, outliers, and an alternative inequality measure. The effect on income inequality is mainly driven by droughts, while the effect on expenditure inequality is mainly driven by flood events.
