Most of us know at least one person who shares our birthday, maybe two. But what if you were born in late summer, or more specifically in August? Chances are you know more than just a few people who share your birthday, and that’s because August is the most common month for births across the United States. In data kept by the United States Center for Disease Control, birth records have shown consistently over the past several decades that August is time and again the most common birth month. So, August is the most common month, but what is the most common day? Well thanks to this handy graph you can see just how common your birthday is.
August isn’t just a hot month for birthdays though. In fact, lots of statistics peak in August such as hurricanes and meteor showers. But something a little more relevant to us at Franklin D. Azar & Associates peaks too…. car crashes. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration car accidents peak in August and the most dangerous day is Saturday.
