List of countries by current account balance as a percentage of GDP

Quartile representation of current account balance as percent GDP by IMF WEO data
Quartile representation of current account balance as percent GDP by CIA World factbook data

This article includes a list of countries of the world sorted by current account balance as a percentage of gross domestic product (nominal GDP).

Negative percentages mean that the country is in debt.

The first list includes 2013 data for members of the International Monetary Fund. The UN World Bank sites the IMF as the source for their data on Current Account Balance, and so is not included separately on this page. The second list includes only countries for which the CIA World Factbook lists 2013 estimates for both Current Account Balance and GDP.
