I expected a ton of mid November births from all the valentines day boning... But I guess all the late september births were last minute Christmas gifts.

The reason for this is obvious. Most couples are inside staying warm during the winter months (November, December, January) and "getting jiggy with it" (as Will Smith would say). Thus the majority of birthdays are in July, August and September.

Apparently a lot of kids are born on valentines day some reason. Anyway, I was born in March but I expected a LOT more March births. It seems really common to me.

There are always, obviously, births that "happen when they happen", but given the significant percentage of the others that are induced or planned c-sections (read: total = random dates overlayed with bankers hours dates) ... it`s not surprising that most federal holidays are less common to have as birthdays. Still, something I`d never really thought of until now. lol.

[quote]and yeah, a nontrivial fraction of births are induced. you wouldn`t induce on a holiday.[/quote]

they can no longer induce unless its a medical reason, same with cesarean, at least at the women`s hospital of texas where my sister gave birth (she said something about insurance no longer wanting to pay for it, though, which leads me to believe its not that specific hospital)

ugh. less common and more common don`t mean anything, quantify it! also tell us the sample size. do something right.

and yeah, a nontrivial fraction of births are induced. you wouldn`t induce on a holiday.

It doesn`t make sense that birthdays on July 4th (and 5th) just drop way down compared to the rest of the July. Is this US data? Do fireworks make women clench up and hold it in another 48 hours?

That is why they say most "mentally retarded" (is that the politically correct term?) people are born in September.

Funny funny funny.

September. Late September more specifically. About 9months after new years.

Alcohol + sex + keep the baby = many retarded babies.

Halloween parties, Christmas parties, New Years parties - `tis the season to get it on!

Add three months to your birthday and figure out roughly when your parents went drilling for baby oil. As a mid-Feb birthday, I assume I was a future mother`s day present.

Not a whole lot of January 1st birthdays. Pitty, that would be the best April Fools Day prank.

So.... 9 months after New Years drunk fest
or 9 months after Spring break.

Makes sense.

I love how there`s big sections of "less common" right around holidays: Thanksgiving, Christmas, Independence Day...and then odd points of "more common" on Valentine`s Day & St. Patrick`s Day. And fewer births on the 13th of EVERY month.

Does this mean that women can begin or prevent labor by an extra day or two by sheer force of will?

It`s surprising that Feb 14 should stand out by itself. Perhaps a lot of births are induced on that day?
I wonder where the data came from.

@Monosandalos: it`s obviously US only, nowhere else in the world is July 4/5 so important as to skip birth

This means nothing without a frame of reference. Is it global? Does it concern the US? Europe? Australia? Needs more context for proper evaluation
