Notice that the last term as a TAO ended about one month before the nominal end of term because the upgrade was effective a little earlier than in most cases - normally the upgrade happens on the day after the term ended. Such cases of prematurely ended terms are the most interesting ones, and will write up some articles on some types of premature ends - the end due to a status change is the least interesting one.<council> <term begin="2012-12-16" type="ThesabanTambon" size="12" /> <term begin="2008-11-09" end="2012-11-08" type="ThesabanTambon" size="12" /> <term begin="2004-07-25" end="2008-06-30" type="TAO" size="26" endreason="StatusChange" /></council>
And I am not yet done with this huge task of adding term data, in the meantime the term ends in this year were published as a PDF, and I also found another PDF with the data for 2008. This year there will be a total of 3596 term ends, again a lot of TAO end their term since it is 4th four year period since 1997 when 3637 TAO were created. And again a significant number of these I expect to be upgraded to municipalities this year.
