Monthly totals for gifts donated to the federal government to reduce debt held by the public.
The Gift Contributions to Reduce Debt Held by the Public dataset provides the monthly total for gift contributions received by the U.S. Treasury that were donated to reduce the public debt. These donations can include money, outstanding government obligations (such as savings bonds) and property that is sold for cash. Gifts may be classified as inter vivos (from a living person) or testamentary bequests (from a person's will).
Gift contributions amounts for 1996 and 1997 are provided for the fiscal year end only. This data has a one-month lag behind the current reporting month. Some columns in this dataset overlap with the Monthly Statement of the Public Debt (MSPD) dataset.
