External Debt Statistics provides detailed information on the amount and composition of the external debt of each of 173 countries and territories at the end of each year. In addition, estimates are provided of the
amortization payments due by each country on long-term debt in successive years. These data are reported to the OECD by Member countries' governments and credit institutions, and the main international organisations. Common reporting rules, together with timely reporting, allow for a comprehensive, consistent and up-to-date account of external debt, international comparisons and country risk analysis. Data are available for major country group, individual countries, and territories.
