A heat graph, which corresponds the number of births on any given day to light and dark squares, effectively shows how American birthdays rate against each other.  Using Harvard University data, the graph shows September 16 as the most common birthday in the U.S., while December 25 and February 29 are the least common.  Possibly confirming suspicions we have long held about conception trends, September is nine months after the holiday season.

The graph, which shows every day of the year, from January 1 to December 31, along with a ranking based on how many babies were born in the U.S. on that date, was made from data taken between 1973 and 1999.
