Databases \ International Debt Statistics


Produced by the World Bank, IDS provides data on the external debt of developing countries.

Covers more than 200 external debt and financial flow indicators, including external debt stocks and flows, major economic indicators, key debt ratios and the currency composition of long-term debt for 124 economies that report to the World Bank's Debtor Reporting System (DRS). This includes indicators for public and publicly-guaranteed debt.

The IDS database is updated annually, with a narrative overview of trends, and tables summarising capital flows and debt statistics for reporting countries. It combines observations from 'Quarterly External Debt Statistics' and 'Quarterly Public Sector Debt' published by the World Bank.

IDS was formerly known as Global Development Finance (GDF).
