The highest number of birth
September 26 most popular day to be born over the last two decades
September 26 was the most popular day to be born over the last two decades, which falls 39 weeks and two days after Christmas day.
8 of the top 10 dates of birth were towards the end of September – with the other 2 being early October. Part of the reason for this increase in births could be due to couples planning to have children at the start of the school year.
If births were evenly distributed throughout the year we would expect on average 1,800 births each day.
But the average number of births on September 26 was around 2,000.
In late September show that more babies are born in the weeks leading up to and days after Christmas than at any other time of the year.
It reveals that the highest number of births occur at the end of September.
