Thematic Map > Public debt - World

Loading map...

Definition: This entry records the cumulative total of all government borrowings less repayments that are denominated in a country's home currency. Public debt should not be confused with external debt, which reflects the foreign currency liabilities of both the private and public sector and must be financed out of foreign exchange earnings.

Description: The map displayed here shows how Public debt varies by country. The shade of the country corresponds to the magnitude of the indicator. The darker the shade, the higher the value.
