According to the Indiana Business Research Center (IBRC) at
Indiana University, there was an estimated 1 million potential
trick-or-treaters (children between ages 5 and 13) in 2010.
Of course, there are many children younger than five and older
than 13 who also trick-or-treat. IBRC results also revealed
that an estimated 2.5 million potential trick-or-treating stops
in the State of Indiana with 65 percent of all Americans expected
to celebrate Halloween.
In 2009, 71.2 percent of individuals handed out candy. IBRC
claims Halloween is the candy industrys biggest candy
selling holiday and that Tootsie Rolls are the most popular
Halloween candy - followed by Hersheys Milk Chocolate,
Nestle Crunch and candy corn.
