The Federal Budget in 2016: An Infographic

In 2016, the budget deficit rose for the first time in a number of years, totaling $587 billion—about one-third more than the $438 billion shortfall recorded in 2015. As a percentage of GDP, the deficit increased from 2.4 percent in 2015 to 3.2 percent, the first such increase since 2009. Debt held by the public reached 77 percent of GDP at the end of 2016, marking the highest ratio since 1950. Such a high level of debt (and the increases projected under current law) could have serious negative consequences for the nation, including increasing federal spending on interest payments, restraining economic growth in the long term, giving policymakers less flexibility to respond to unexpected challenges, and eventually increasing the risk of a fiscal crisis.
