Agency Debt Update for 2015

usgovernmentspending.com has updated its data for agency debt from the Federal Reserve Board database. Data is now available for the period 1945-2015. You can see our Agency Debt page here, and a comparison with the official "on-the-books" debt here.

For the period 2016 to 2021 usgovernmentspending.com has "guesstimated" the agency debt, assuming that it increases at the same rate as it did in 2014 to 2015.

See "Federal 'Agency Debt' Added" for explanation of  data derivation. Data is downloaded from the FRB data download page.
