Debt Growth of Domestic Nonfinancial Sectors

The figure plots the 4-quarter moving average percent growth rate of debt outstanding for domestic nonfinancial sectors at a quarterly frequency. The growth rate of debt is calculated as the seasonally adjusted flow divided by the seasonally adjusted level in the previous period, multiplied by 100. In the Financial Accounts, debt equals the sum of debt securities and loans. The underlying data on the debt growth of the federal government, state and local governments, household and nonprofit organizations, and the nonfinancial business sectors are reported in the Financial Accounts as series FG314104005.Q, FG214104005.Q, FG154104005.Q, and FG144104005.Q, respectively.
