USA Today is tracking the world’s most indebted countries and the United States ranks fourth in the list.
The article looks at the national construction sector, which includes hotels, resorts, apartments and office buildings.
The United States’ debt is the third highest in the top 10, after China and Mexico.
In the list, it also has the lowest debt per capita in the developed world.
The average debt per person is $29,500.
The U.S. also has one of the highest debt levels in the Americas.
“The United States continues to be a debtor nation and is the world leader in its share of total debt,” said Eric Miller, senior economist at the World Bank Group.
“We have a debt problem of unprecedented size.”
The list includes China, the world No. 2 debtor, and the Philippines, which has the highest ratio of debt to GDP.
Mexico and Argentina are the other two countries on the list with the highest ratios of debt.
It’s the first time since the list was created in 2010 that the U.K. has topped the list of most indebted nations.
The list was originally created to show the debt-to-GDP ratio for the United Kingdom.
Mexico, which ranked as the second most indebted country, had the highest percentage of debt at 42.5 percent, according to the World Economic Forum.
The report is based on a ranking of the 50 most indebted economies compiled by Bloomberg News.
The ranking includes countries from the United Nations, World Bank and the World Financial Stability Board.
