The project "public debt monitor" aims at a regular monitoring of fiscal sustainability in Germany, both at the state level (including social security) and the federal level (including municipalities). Using a scientifically founded concept as well as comprehensible and transparent assumptions and calculations, the consolidation need for the individual households are quantified and the current consolidation efforts are evaluated. The new version of the "public debt monitor" updates the data of the former study of the year 2005 and compares the results of both studies.
