Abstract

The macroeconomics factor that could affect the Household Debt in different countries has been
investigated globally by researches such Debelle (2004), Mian, Sufi, & Verner (2015), Turinetti &
Zhuang (2011) and Meniago, Mukuddem-Petersen, Petersen, & Mongale (2013). This study aims
to extend the knowledge of the relationship and impact of macroeconomic factors such as Interest
Rate (BLR), Inflation Rate (CPI), Unemployment Rate (UR) and House Price Index (HPI) towards
the Household Debt to GDP in Malaysia. Simple linear regression and multiple linear regression
were applied in this study in order to clarify the relationship between the macroeconomic factors
with the Household Debt to GDP in Malaysia. The result obtained in this study indicates there is
a positive significant relationship between Inflation Rate (CPI) with Household debt to GDP in
Malaysia.
