Debt service ratios for the private non-financial sector

Updated 18 September 2023

Our data

DSRs are derived from aggregated data based on a unified methodology which captures the dynamics of DSRs over time. It is more meaningful to compare national DSRs over time (by, for instance, removing country-specific means) rather than compare their absolute levels which are difficult to pinpoint. This approach also takes account of different institutional and behavioural factors affecting average remaining maturities.
