Whether you give out the full-size bars or keep your lights off and blinds closed, we are sure you are keenly interested in all things remotely related (and boy, are some of these data points remotely related) to Halloween.
The Census Bureau’s data tells us that there are 1.3 million people who work as construction laborers, which is a job you can dress up as for Halloween. We're not sure what they're getting at with that data point, but we think it tells you what you don't want to dress up as.
We figure if your costume is something over a million people are just on a daily basis, people will probably think you just got off work and didn’t dress up at all. And no one needs that kind of embarrassing confusion on the most auspicious of all dressing-up holidays.
Pro tip: Your best bet, according to their chart, is to dress up as a private investigator or locomotive engineer. Give CSX a ring and see if you can borrow one of their cool seersucker hats.
