In 2019, 95% of households in Glasgow had access to a bank or building society account. This was the same percentage as in Inverclyde, South Lanarkshire and the Scottish average, but a lower proportion than in East Dunbartonshire (99%), North Lanarkshire and West Dunbartonshire (both 97%). The two lowest points on this chart - 86% in West Dunbartonshire in 2017 and 85% in Renfrewshire in 2019 - both indicate a large proportion (9% and 14% respectively) of respondents not answering the question, rather than answering that they did not have access to a bank or building society account. 


These data come from the Scottish Household Survey. They have not been updated for 2020, since the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic meant a change in methods for the survey. The results are therefore not comparable with previous years. More details on these changes can be found on the SHS site. This page will be updated when data for 2021 are available.
