Trick-or-treating is a sweet science for many children — a fruitful route can take a concerted effort of skill, strategy and execution.

But a data set predicts exactly where the onslaught of trick-or-treaters will hit the streets.

Created by software developer Jens von Bergmann, Census Mapper’s Trick-or-Treat Density Estimator estimates the number of children of prime trick-or-treat age per area, so the expected trick-or-treat foot traffic in each area.

Updated with 2016 census data, the estimator shows the number of children aged 3 through 14 per km².

So, use this map if you plan on taking your kids out trick-or-treating and want to make sure you find the area in your neighbourhood with the most kids out on the street.

If you’re not hitting the streets but rather wonder how many to expect at your door, check out Census Mapper’s Trick-or-Treat Onslaught Estimator.

Just looking for Haunted Houses? No problem, they’ve got you covered as well.
