In 2019, 95% of households in Glasgow had access to a bank or building society account. This was the same as the Scottish average, and higher than in Edinburgh or Dundee (both 92%), although lower than in Aberdeen (99%). There has been improvement in the rate of households with access to a bank or building society account in Glasgow over time, which was only 84% in 2009.


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.
