Monster Apocalypse: Your State's Fate by Street NamesHalloween graphic of haunted streets

Halloween is just around the corner, and since we eat and drink addresses every day at Smarty, we get into the spooky spirit by exploring the eerie and mysterious street names across the United States?

In the movie "Beetlejuice," saying the titular character's name 3 times would summon the chaotic and mischievous demon himself. 

At Smarty, we have a theory. Like Beetlejuice, every haunting creature has a magic number, and whenever someone sends mail to a house on Vampire Road in Gallitzin, Pennsylvania, delivers pizza to Goblin Drive in Harrison, Arkansas, or navigates to Zombie Way in Moncks Corner, South Carolina, it brings each state closer to their own monster apocalypse.

While nobody knows the magic number of mentions to summon these creatures, there's still hope. We've searched our comprehensive address database to tally up every eerie entity, and we'll predict which states will come under siege first.

In our search for the paranormal, we've scoured our US address data of over 210 million addresses for ghosts, goblins, warlocks, vampires, and over 30 supernatural beasts & beings. In total, we've found 738 spooky streets and 16,312 haunted addresses. These are the creepy crawlers coming for us all.

The following table breaks down each state by most probable monster apocalypse, and identifies how many addresses with that monster appear in that state along with the total of all monster-related addresses in each state, and, of course, our favorite spooky addresses we found in each state:

With 4,952 "Phantom" addresses, it's pretty clear Mississipians should have started preparing yesterday. They'll need as many P.K.E. Meters, Proton Packs, & Ghost Traps as money can buy. 

The next closest state is North Carolina with 743 "Troll" addresses, so we should have several years between the invasion of Mississippi and the troll attack on North Carolina. Based on the numbers, Iowa residents probably have a few lifetimes before Goblins swarm their cities.

If fighting monsters isn't your thing, consider moving to Rhode Island, Hawaii, or Delaware. As the only states in our analysis without haunted addresses, we can expect them to stay monster-free forever. 

Finally, if you use and rely on address data, remember this: as you work with addresses, you play a part in unfolding this paranormal narrative. Brace yourselves, and may your Halloween be filled with tricks and treats!

Star Wars Day
Arrow Icon
One of the most popular and successful movie franchises—by far—is George Lucas' Star Wars. The impact Star Wars has had on the culture of the United States and the rest of the world is incredible. From 1977 on, Hollywood has been producing large, fantastical blockbusters packed with practical and computer-generated special effects. Movies have started being considered based wholly on the merchandise they could sell. Toy laser swords have been selling like hotcakes, and every child finds themselves secretly trying to turn off the light from their bed using the Force.
Dealing with Address Data from Multiple Countries

In our recent webinar, we hosted Jeffrey Duncan, our Technical Product Manager, who discussed the complexities and nuances of managing address data across various international formats. While seemingly straightforward, addresses are quite complex, especially when dealing with international data. Jeffrey highlighted the variability in address formats, which can range from the number of address lines to the order of address components, differing significantly from one country to another. For instance, while a US address typically follows a structured format, addresses in countries like Germany or India can have a completely different setup, impacting data entry and management.
