Economies by Debt Levels

The debt-to-GDP ratio is the ratio between a country's government debt and its gross domestic product (GDP).

World Economics has upgraded each country's GDP presenting it in Purchasing Power Parity terms with added estimates for the size of the informal economy and adjustments for out-of-date GDP base year data. Using the World Economics GDP Database it is possible to see more realistic debt levels for each country.
