The Schedules of Federal Debt dataset provides monthly and fiscal year-to-date changes in federal debt. It shows increases (borrowing) and decreases (repayments) in debt. The data notes whether the debt is debt held by the public or intragovernmental holdings. These two categories are further broken down into principal debt, accrued interest payable, and net unamortized premiums/discounts. All figures are rounded to the nearest million.
