Central government debt to GDP ratio in Sweden 2006-2018 The ratio of the Swedish central government debt to gross domestic product fluctuated over the years but decreased annually since 2014. In 2018, the ratio was 26 percent, the lowest ratio of the whole period, and was forecast to decrease even further in 2019. The debt in 2018 was around 1.26 trillion Swedish kronor, but was forecast to decrease in 2019 and 2020.
Higher government incomes than expenditures in 2017

      The government debt is affected by the relationship between the central government’s expenditures and incomes. In 2017, the governments income was around one trillion Swedish kronor, which was lower than the expenditures that amounted to around 940 billion Swedish kronor, which means a decrease in government debt.  

Fluctuation expenses for the EU budget

   The government debt decreased between 2016 and 2017, but when looking at the growth in consolidated gross debt (excluding government securities) as share of the gross domestic product, it shows an increase between the two years of 0.3 percent.
