2020 Debt Per Capita

What is Debt per capita?

Debt per capita measures the amount of government debt per citizen. Along with other key fiscal metrics, debt per capita can provide a useful indication of a government's debt burden and underscore its current fiscal condition. Calculated with U.S. Census Bureau data, this metric includes a broader set of obligations than simply general obligation debt. Please see for additional information.
