Easterhouse is a post-war suburb about 6 miles (9.7 km) east of Glasgow city centre. It was partially built on land gained from the county of Lanarkshire as part of a boundary expansion of Glasgow before the Second World War. Construction began in mid 1950's when building by the then local authority, Glasgow Corporation, commenced. The aim was to provide better housing for the people of the east end living in sub-standard conditions. The area is situated on a high elevation north of the River Clyde and south of the River Kelvin and Campsie Fells. It was built to house over 50,000 people but the current population (based on the 2001 census) was 26,495, of which 96.85% were born in Scotland. 172 people or 0.63% of this population were born outside Scotland, the lowest percentage in the country.
