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.
