Well last night wasn’t as irritating as I was afraid it would be. I took some advice from Mary Poppins and turned my job into a game!
I decided that if I was going to fly solo at Halloween this year I should really pay attention to how many kids come by. That way I’ll have a better idea of how much candy to buy for next year. (I always get way too much.) So I started collecting some demographic information on last night’s trick-or-treaters.
I had 78 trick-or-treaters at my house last night, with an average number of three trick-or-treaters per doorbell ring.
I whipped up some Excel graphs late last night that should help you to visualize my data! And also help you to see how ugly Excel graphs are. (Excel 2007 fixes this.)
I’ll let the numbers speak for themselves.
