REDDIT SURVEY: Late Summer and these 4 days see most US Births

This coming Thursday, September 25th and Friday, September 26th is among the 4 most common birthdays for babies born in the United States.

Dan Lin, a University of Virginia grad student analyzed Centers for Disease Control data from 1994 to 2003 and determined that the months of August and September are the most popular months for births.  He found that 9 months after days when there are major snow storms in many parts of America,  most babies are born on September 12, 18, 25 and 26.

Lin also discovered that holidays like New Year’s Day, the 4th of July and Christmas are among the least likely days Americans give birth.

The most common day babies are born is Tuesday, while Sunday is the least common day.

Interesting stuff!
