U.S.’s Bond Maturity Timeline is Similar to Spain’s.

In Debt on April 6, 2011 by CQCA

The Spanish government posts the maturity of its Treasury notes on its website. The U.S. Treasury is not as transparent. Quarterly data on refunding was published until February, 2010. The chart above is from the last Quarterly Refunding Charts Report by the Office of Debt Management. They also provide the data they use to compile their reports.

The chart above shows the total debt due each year. The U.S. debt maturity is clustered in the near-future, which increases the likeliness of default. However, the data that was provided (and was turned into the graph above) only added up to $4.87 trillion, which is considerably less than the actual national debt in February, 2010.
