Halloween in Canada by the Numbers

By: Kimberley Dart

Thank you Statistics Canada for compiling these numbers.  As a self proclaimed number junkie I live for this stuff!

  • 3,734,401 — The estimated number of children in Canada of prime trick-or-treating age—5 to 14 years old—in 2012, up 0.2% from 2011.
  • 2,743 hectares — The approximate land area (6,778 acres) on which pumpkins were harvested in Canada in 2011.
  • 112.2 million — The number of tickets sold at cinemas (including indoor theatres, drive-ins and film festivals) in Canada in 2010, down 1.9% from 114.4 million in 2009.
  • $355.9 million — The value in monthly sales of candy, confectionery and snack foods at large retailers in October 2011. December, however, was the month with the highest monthly sales in 2011, at $465.3 million.
  • There is a general increase in the number of criminal incidents reported to police on October 31, compared with October 24.
