Summertime Mystery


More born, fewer die in August.

It’s August — the height of baby season, and the time of year when Americans are least likely to die.

The United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has kept statistics that say that most babies are born during the summer, and there is a birth peak in August.

9 months before August is November, so plenty of Thanksgiving sex.

Officials are far more settled on why deaths tend to dip at this time of year and surge again in the winter months. On a day-by-day basis, August has the fewest deaths, while January has the most.
