Debt service ratios of households
As a percentage  1
 1 Annual figures refer to the average of the year. DSRs are derived from aggregated data based on a unified methodology which captures the dynamics of DSRs over time. It is more meaningful to compare national DSRs over time (by, for instance, removing country-specific means) rather than compare their absolute levels which are difficult to pinpoint. This approach also takes account of different institutional and behavioural factors affecting average remaining maturities.
