It is assumed that births are unevenly distributed throughout any given year, with the distribution influenced by such factors as climate, culture, and major economic and social events. But, is there evidence for this hypothesis? We at Knoema believe that the best evidence starts with data. So, we collected demographic statistics on the number of births monthly from January 2009 through December 2015 for two countries—Russia and the United States—to see what the data could tell us.
The data clearly shows that births are not randomly distributed throughout the year, instead births seem to correspond with climate and leisure conditions, which may influence parents’ desire to conceive children.
