[en] We describe a new publicly available dataset on credit structure across the world over the period 1995-2014. The database contains two modules. The first part reports the structure of bank loan by types of borrowers (households vs. firms). Data are available for 143 countries. Household credit is breakdown between mortgage loans and other household loans (credit cards, car loans, student loans, etc.). Firm credit is decomposed into six sectors (agriculture, industry, construction, transport, trade and other services).
The second module contains credit by maturity for 85 countries. Short-term credit is defined as loans with a maturity of one year or less and long-term credit as loans whose maturity exceeds one year. Database is freely available and downlable in Excel and Stata format at the following link:
