A friend posted an interesting data table on my Facebook wall yesterday, which was my birthday. The data listed each day of the year with a ranking for how many babies were born in the United States on each date from 1973 to 1999. Some interesting trends are evident in the data. Apparently, people like to make babies around the winter holiday season because a large proportion of babies are born in September (ours is due Sept. 24, btw).research

US data only, presented as a heatmap, showing the most (and least) common days for a birthday. There's a strange gap in the data for July 4 and 5 which one has to assume is something to do with national holidays, since a similar one is found around Christmas.
