The federal government's supplementary securities are not shown in this overview, as they are offset on balance by the ESF's investment in claims on the federal government.
Debt of Federal Budget, Special Funds & Loan Financing
Download of debt statistics incl. gross borrowing requirements, repayments and interest
The long-term time series published here on debt levels, gross borrowing requirements, interest, redemptions and outstanding volume (including own holdings) refer to Federal securities or borrowing by the Federal government. As central government debt statistics, they only represent a part of the general government debt statistics. In addition to the Federal government, total government debt in the general government budget also includes the Länder, municipalities and municipal associations as well as social security funds, including all extra-budgetary funds. In the national accounts, the sum of all these levels is the starting point for calculating the Maastricht debt level, which is used for international comparisons of government debt ratios.
Federal borrowing is used to finance the federal budget and its special funds as well as to take out loans for the FMS and ESF, which are passed on to institutions under public law (loan financing). All time series are available for download with disaggregated data. All figures are in euro.
