Notes: Figures are accurate as of September 30, 2019. “Number of federal student loan borrowers” includes the total number of borrowers with Direct Loans, FFEL, and Perkins loans. “Outstanding federal student debt” includes outstanding debt held by borrowers with Direct Loans, FFEL, and Perkins loans; interest on school-held Perkins loans is not included in the totals. “Number in income-driven repayment plans” includes borrowers with Direct Loans and Department of Education-held FFEL who are in income-driven repayment plans. The location of the borrower is reported by the servicer, and the sum of figures in this report may differ slightly from the Direct Loan Portfolio by Delinquency Status report due to rounding, timing, and system differences. Current address is not required to be reported to the U.S. Department of Education by commercial lenders (FFEL or Perkins). This chart does not include borrowers categorized by their servicer as “Other” or “Not Reported.”
