Enter the total country debt ($) and the total country GDP ($) into the Debt to GDP Ratio Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Debt to GDP Ratio. 

Debt to GDP Ratio Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Debt to GDP Ratio. 


  • Where DGDP is the Debt to GDP Ratio
  • TD is the total country debt ($) 
  • GDP is the total country GDP ($) 

To calculate the debt to GDP ratio, divide the total debt by the total GDP.

How to Calculate Debt to GDP Ratio?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Debt to GDP Ratio.

Example Problem #1:

  1. First, determine the total country debt ($).
    • The total country debt ($) is given as: 10,000,000.
  2. Next, determine the total country GDP ($).
    • The total country GDP ($) is provided as: 100,000,000.
  3. Finally, calculate the Debt to GDP Ratio using the equation above: 

DGDP = TD / GDP *100

The values given above are inserted into the equation below and the solution is calculated:

DGDP = 10,000,000 / 100,000,000 *100 = 10.00 ( %)

Example Problem #2: 

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

total country debt ($) = 50,000,000

total country GDP ($) = 200,000,000

Test your knowledge using the equation and check your answer with the calculator above.

DGDP = TD / GDP *100 = ?
