The Village of Glencoe is the northernmost North Shore suburb in Cook County.
The population of Glencoe has shrunk over time from its peak of over 10,000 to a 2005 Census Bureau estimate of 7,890.
The demographics of Glencoe mirror much of the North Shore. In 2005 the median family income was $218,535. Forty percent of the 25 adult population has earned a college degree, and another 40 percent a graduate degree. Ninety-five percent of the population is white, 2 percent African-American, just under 2 percent Asian and 1.2 percent Hispanic / Latino.
In part due to a history of religious discrimination in other North Shore suburbs, Glencoe became home to a significant Jewish population in the middle decades of the twentieth century.
Glencoe has a higher percentage of its housing stock (approximately 15 percent) in multi-family buildings than Wilmette, Kenilworth or Winnetka, and a higher percentage of homes that were built after World War II.
