A new database on general government debt

BIS Quarterly Review, 2015
A new data set on general government debt for 26 advanced and 14 emerging market economies is presented by Christian Dembiermont, Michela Scatigna, Robert Szemere and Bruno Tissot (BIS). Combined with the BIS series on credit to the non-financial private sector, BIS data sets can now capture the indebtedness of all non-financial sectors. The new data set includes series expressed in both nominal (actual repayment amounts) and market values. As far as possible, data are constructed using consistent principles for consolidation, instrument coverage, sector coverage and other dimensions. While the resulting series focus on the core instruments of government indebtedness, they should prove useful for comparative cross-border analysis.
