Provide information for over-indebtedness statistics


The Federal Statistical Office (StBA) continuously collects and analyses data on the topics of income, consumption and living conditions of private households with the aim of drawing a picture of the different living conditions in Germany. These statistics serve, among other things, as a basis for political action.

In this context, the Federal Statistical Office annually collects the over-indebtedness statistics. It reports on the situation of over-indebted persons and persons threatened by over-indebtedness in Germany. For example, she asks about triggers of financial distress. The aim of the survey is to understand how over-indebtedness of private individuals can be avoided or dissolved.

For this survey, the Federal Statistical Office relies on data from debt or insolvency counselling centres. Respondents are bodies in Germany that are sponsored by welfare and consumer associations as well as municipal associations and other corporations under public law or that are recognized as non-profit organizations or registered as an association.

The transmission of your institution's anonymised data for over-indebtedness statistics is voluntary. Before you transmit the data to the Federal Statistical Office, you need the consent of the person seeking advice, which is shown in the statistical data.

The data transmission works via software with an interface, which automatically extracts the data from your software systems and transmits it to the Federal Statistical Office.

For the transmission of personal data of those seeking advice, you must obtain their consent to the data transfer.

You do not need to submit any further documents.

There are no costs for you.

Your data must be transmitted to the Federal Statistical Office by 15 February of the calendar year following the reference year at the latest.

Please contact the Federal Statistical Office.
