Amount of Debt

About this Indicator

This indicator measures the average debt of graduates from four-year public institutions. The debt estimates reflect the average per-undergraduate borrower cumulative principal from institutional, state, federal, and private loans. The debt estimates do not take into account credit card debt and family loans, thereby underestimating the overall debt burden incurred through postsecondary education.
