This chart looks as types of housing in each of the 56 neighbourhoods in Glasgow.  The chart is arranged by how much of the housing stock in each neighbourhood consists of flats, as these constitute the overwhelming majority of dwellings in the city.  Robroyston and Millerston (in the north-east of the city) is made up of mostly detached and semi-detached properties, while at the other end of the spectrum, the neighbourhoods in the city centre and West End almost entirely consist of flats.
