Sacramento ranks 6th in Halloween list

Trick-or-Treat Rankings from’s Trick-or-Treat Housing Index has Sacramento coming in at #6, ahead of Chicago and Boston.

There is a common belief that wealthy neighborhoods are the Holy Grail for harvesting the most Halloween candy. However, to provide a more holistic approach to trick-or-treating, the Zillow Trick-or-Treat Housing Index was calculated using four equally weighted data variables: Zillow Home Value Index, population density, Walk Score and local crime data from Relocation Essentials. Based on those variables, the Index represents cities that will provide the most candy, with the least walking and safety risks.

That’s decent news for Sacramento. We need decent news, right?

If you haven’t played around with, give it a shot. My house only received a 43 out of 100 and was deemed “Car Dependent” with 81% of Sacramento residents having a higher Walk Score.

What’s your Walk Score?

  1. I’d say that is great news. The factors driving Trick or Treat score would also be good indicators for quality of life.

    15. No groceries in my neighborhood ๐Ÿ˜ฆ


  2. 82 for my house, 94 for my neighborhood. I suspect it ranks low in the “Entertainment” department, but it doesn’t include the theaters or nightclubs in my neighborhood that I would consider “entertainment” but they don’t. We don’t get many Trick or Treaters except drunk Halloween party people.


  3. 83.

    But the Trick or Treat index seems pretty arbitrary since they never validated their index scores with quantifiable data.
