This study is using time series analysis which data collected from period of Quarter One 2000 until Quarter Four 2018 and covers for Malaysia only. The quarterly time series data were obtained from Thomson Reuters Data Stream, Bank Negara Malaysia and World Bank Data. In order to obtain the empirical result, Multiple Linear Regression model is applied to obtain the relationship between independent and dependent variables. By using Multiple Linear Regression model, the result concludes that Housing Price Index (HPI), Interest Rate (IR) and Unemployment Rate (UR) has statistically significant impact towards the level of household debt in Malaysia with positive correlation except for Interest Rate (IR) with negative relationship. However, Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and Inflation Rate (IFR) were found to have insignificant relationship between household debts with negative correlations. Based on the results obtained, recommendations are made for the significant of study to help them in improving the household debt level in the long run.
