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