The scariest part of Halloween night? Running out of candy for hungry trick-or-treaters.
Thanks to Census Mapper you can avoid this tragedy altogether thanks to this handy Trick-or-Treat Onslaught Estimator that’s been put together using data collected in both the 2006 and 2011 census.
This interactive Canada-wide map estimates the number of children of ‘prime trick-or-treat’ age per doorbell in various areas, aiming to give adults a heads up when it comes to the amount of candy they will need.
The darker the section the more children living in the area, and the more likely you are to get an onslaught of costume-clad kids at your door tonight. It looks like the most spooktacular area for trick-or-treaters in Calgary is estimated to be in Marda Loop and the neighbourhoods within the boundaries of 16th Avenue, Highway 8, and 69th Street.
Check out the stats in your neighbourhood and see if you need to make a last minute trip to stock up on candy – can’t say we didn’t warn you!
