This also indicates that December is the least common month for births, with January and February having similarly low birth rates. But what does that mean? According to this data, the least popular months to get it on are March, April, and May. Maybe because those are all the months that have less than 30 days!
The most popular times of day for babies are between noon and 4 p.m. And based on these statistics, we can see that there are more births during the summer months and early fall. This makes sense since these are all the time periods when there's more sunlight and thus better nutrition for developing babies.
Finally, here's a map showing where people are most likely to give birth:
You'll see that states with big cities have high birth rates too. This makes sense since women in large cities tend to have more access to health care and education, which means better chances of delivering healthy babies.
Also worth mentioning is that black women are more likely to give birth in winter, while white women are more likely to give birth in spring and summer. So if you're looking to deliver a baby, do it during one of these popular times of year or in the summer months when they're most likely to be born.
Because, while Christmas is the most usual time for people to conceive, it is also the least ideal time to give birth. The woman's body is in transition mode, preparing for pregnancy, but not ready for labor yet. So, if you want to avoid having your holiday season and spring cleaning go up in smoke, try to conceive between August and October.
Another reason why March is such a dangerous month to be born is because it's the period when some people date their baby's arrival to the world. This is called "premature infant mortality rate" or PIMR for short. Statistics show that babies born in March have a higher chance of dying before they reach birth than other babies do. In fact, their risk is about 10% higher than the general average.
Finally, there is evidence suggesting that babies born in March experience more health problems than other children do. For example, they are more likely to require surgery to correct heart defects or abnormalities of the ears or eyes. Also, they are more likely to be stillborn or die within days of birth.
All in all, babies born in March are at great risk of dying young. If this happens to you, know that you are not alone and that many others have gone through this before you.
February According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, February is the least common month for births. About 1 in 20 babies is born on February 29th. January April July August September October November December
Babies are born monthly throughout the year, but only one in 20 is born on its official birthday: February 29th. This number gets even smaller after you account for leap years (because if there's a day when it isn't exactly February 29th, then it can't be your birthday). There are only five days in February when there will not be at least one baby born: 2/29/2008, 3/1/2008, 3/8/2008, 3/15/2008, and 3/22/2008.
The most common month of birth is March, with an estimated 1 million births registered each year. February is next at about 995,000. January has the most births per day, about 35, while February has the lowest, about 10.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, February is the least common month for births. That's also sensible, given that May is nine months earlier, with longer, brighter days, higher temperatures, and typically more outside activities. Perhaps this is why June is the most popular birth month, with July not too far behind.
The rarest birthday month statistic comes from the World Data Bank, which collects birth data from health agencies all over the world. They calculate how many births fall on each day of the year, and then make a map! So yes, there are actually countries where January is the most common birth month, and others where August is most common.
Here are the top 10 rarest birthdays:
January - January is the rarest birthday month because it has the fewest total births every year. There are usually between 80 and 100 babies born in Canada and the United States on this date, compared to the approximately 3 million babies born in other countries where January is the most common birth month.
February - February is the rarest birthday month because it has the lowest average number of babies per birth.
