Definition: Debt is the entire stock of direct government fixed-term contractual obligations to others outstanding on a particular date. It includes domestic and foreign liabilities such as currency and money deposits, securities other than shares, and loans.

Because debt is a stock rather than a flow, it is measured as of a given date, usually the last day of the fiscal year.
