Household Debt Payments: Percent of GDP

This is great.  I have taken the household debt payment (TDSP) and financial obligations series (FODSP), which measure payments as a percent of disposable income, and I have divided them by gross domestic product (GDP).  Household debt payments are currently 8% of GDP and were 10.5% of GDP at the height of the financial crisis.
Household debt payments (TDSP) and household financial obligations (FODSP) each multiplied by disposable personal income, and then divided by GDP.
The ratio of the two series: payments:obligations.
Household debt payments (TDSP) to financial obligations (FODSP).
So what else can we do with the debt payment series?  Factor in taxes.
