This map predicts the number of trick-or-treaters you can expect this year

The most frightening thing that could happen on Halloween night is running out of candy for trick-or-treaters.

But luckily, the Census Mapper will help you 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, meaning you’ll probably have to stock up on some more candy.

And Montreal has a ton of spooktacular dark sections, including Avenue du Parc:

The neighbourhood east of Parc La Fontaine

Along Avenue Lorimier and Avenue Papineau

And near Avenue Van Home

Check out the stats in your neighbourhood and see if you need to make an extra trip to stock up on candy tis year – can’t say we didn’t warn you!
