Debt to GDP ratio - additional information

The household debt to GDP ratio decreased in the recent years from 90.11 percent in the first quarter of 2011 to 79.75 percent in the first quarter of 2016. This tendency could be explained by steady growth of gross domestic product in the United States or reduction of household debt. Mortgages, which are the most significant component of the household debt, decreased from 10.42 trillion U.S. dollars in the fourth quarter of 2009 to 9.75 trillion U.S. dollars in the fourth quarter of 2016 in the United States.

Public debt in the United States, which is the amount of money borrowed by the government to finance budget deficits, increased from year to year and reached approximately 13.12 trillion U.S. dollars in 2015. According to the forecast, public debt in the United States will amount to approximately 23.82 trillion U.S. dollars in 2026. The major holders of American government debt, as of March 2016, were SOMA and intragovernmental holdings and foreign and international holders. National debt in the United States constituted 105.61 percent of GDP in 2016.

The ratio of national debt to GDP varies significantly on a global scale. The countries with the highest ratios of national debt to GDP in 2016 were, among others, Japan, Greece and Lebanon. The lowest debt to GDP ratios were observed in Macao SAR, Hong Kong SAR and Brunei Darussalam in the same year.
