This graph shows that in terms of cleanliness, Glasgow is equal with Edinburgh, with a rating of 71 out of 100.


Cleanliness is measured on a scale of A to D at various sites in each area, and the range of grades recorded is then used to calculate the cleanliness index (score). A score of 67 is the minimum acceptable standard.

This indicator is quite out-of-date and cannot be updated because the underlying data are no longer collected.
