In 2021, 97% of households in Glasgow had access to a bank, building society or credit union account. This was the same as the Scottish average, but a lower proportion than in West Dunbartonshire or Inverclyde (both 100%), or Renfrewshire (98%). The lowest proportion in the GCR was reported for South Lanarkshire, where 94% of residents had a bank, building society or credit union account. 


These data come from the Scottish Household Survey. The impact of the Covid-19 pandemic meant a change in methods for the survey for 2020 and 2021. There are no estimates at local authority level for 2020 and the figures for 2021 are considered not comparable with previous years. More details on these changes can be found on the SHS site.

This page was updated in June 2023 and will be updated again when the next round of data is available.
