Debt-to-GDP ratio

« Back to Glossary Index

The Debt-to-GDP ratio measures the amount of a country’s national debt in relation to its GDP.

Often expressed as a percentage, this figure indicates a country’s ability to pay back its debts based on its output. The lower the debt-to-GDP ratio, the more capable the country is of paying back its debt, and the lower the risk of default.
