Find out how rare your birthday is with statistics provided by the Association for Healthcare Security
This information allows us to find the most popular and rare birth dates from the last 20 years.
Do you want to know how common is your birthday? Or determine the degree of its rarity?
Have you ever wondered about how many people were born on the same day, at the same hour, or even minute as you? Occasionally we meet people who have their birthday on the same day as ours. Many of our friends have birthdays on the same date. One would assume that there is generally the same amount of children born every single day. But does that actually occur in reality?
It turns out there are actually several popular dates when more children are born
There are also many unpopular dates, when less babies are born. The Association for Healthcare Security decided to combine all of their birth data for the period between 1994 to 2014. Similar research was done in New Zealand, however the results weren’t as extensive as the research from the USA.
You will be completely surprised by this visual chart based on the data derived from around 500 000 birthdays!
The darker the square, the more babies that were born on that day
According to this study, the most popular birthday is the 9th of September (12301 people out of the 500000), while the least popular is the 25th of December (just 6574 people out of the 500000). The top 9 popular dates on the chart are all in September!
These results prove that humanity has discovered how to control the birth rate, and researchers have been able to draw several important conclusions!
The Holidays are a great time to plan a baby.
American researchers decided to compare the most popular dates with the probable days of conception. It turns out that kids born in September were “created” during the Christmas and New Year holidays.
Holidays are not the preferred time to give birth
The number of babies born during the Christmas and New Year holidays is twice as low than on any other day. One exception, however, is Saint Valentine’s Day. Doctors are sinisterly playing a part in the planning process in order to avoid certain key holiday dates. The doctors dangerously increase the speed of the birth process, or schedule risky caesarean sections, only so that they, and the mothers, can avoid spending time in the hospital during the holidays.
You can study the statistics on the Global Population Project in order to discover how many people were born on the very same day as you. The system also incorporates date from the UN to calculate the longevity of your life.
