Data lens: 2022 Calgary Halloween kid count results

Entirely unscientific kid count shows Auburn Bay most trick or treated community

Following a night of costumes and candy, LiveWire Calgary is delivering up some more tasty data treats with the results from the 2022 Halloween kid count.

The entirely unscientific results were taken from the annual #yyckidcount hashtag on Twitter and Facebook.

Mayor Jyoti Gondek followed in the over-a-decade long tradition of Calgary’s mayors promoting the annual count on social media.

LWC collected the results from 350 homes in the city, excluding any results that were outside of Calgary or did not have a community location.

On average, each home received 74 kids during Halloween night. This year, there were four houses that posted 400+ kids, and two at over 600.

The number one trick or treated community, by the entirely unscientific social media poll, was Auburn Bay with an average of 463 kids per home. This was followed by Garrison Woods with 322 kids per home, and Christie Park in third, with 260.
