In 2017, 19.7 per cent of people living in East Renfrewshire were aged 65 or over. By 2041, almost one quarter of the East Renfrewshire population will be aged 65 or over.

Whilst most communities experienced a rise in people aged 65 and over, there are differences in age structures in the different areas of East Renfrewshire. Between 2011 and 2016, the increase in the percentages of over 65s in Uplawmoor, Newton Mearns, Neilston, Netherlee and Stamperland, and Barrhead was higher than the Council average. Busby was the only areas to experience a slight decrease in older people. However Busby was one of few areas which had an increase in the proportion children and young people living in the area across the same time period.
