7 vite mė parė
Public debt per capita is calculated as the ratio of the total stock of debt still outstanding in a given year by the registered population for that year. In simple terms, it represents the average of "the amount each of us carries" or "has to pay" from the debt taken over the years by governments. 

Open Data Albania has examined the performance of this indicator in the years 2010-2014, which appears in the chart below.
