Most Common Birthday

The Most Common Birthday Day

What is the most popular day to be born on? This question has been asked many times over the internet, but not really answered. is one of the only reliable sources that have given an answer with a reason as to why this could be.

In 2001 some researchers asked 12,576 Americans in a survey when their birthday was.

The results came out as 5th October being the most common date where most people are born.

This works out to be approximately 690,000 Americans with the shared birthday of October 5th.

This is the main theory about why this is the most common birthday, which is: To be born on this date, a baby would most likely have been conceived on New Year’s Eve – which makes sense really.

So if you’re birthday is actually on this date, you have to leave a comment!

The survey also found that the most uncommon day to be born on is 22nd May.

May is classed as a lucky month to be born on, so if you’re born on 22nd, you’re extra lucky in my opinion!

Please share this if you know other people who share this birthday, and happy birthday to all you October 5’s!

  34. Dawn 28 February 2013

    I am an October 5 baby, and I was born on my Dad’s birthday! Guess I know what my parents AND grandparents were doing on New Year’s Eve!!!

  35. Stathead 1 February 2013

    I was actually born on this date. I am also a statistics professor. I think you may want to check on the fact that 690,000 people in the United States have a birthday of October 5. If that were the case then since there is 300,000,000 people in the US, that would translate to 690,000/300,000,000 as the likelihood of a baby being born on that date. This is a probability of .0023. If every child in the US had an equal probability of being born on any date (365 days) that would mean a probability of 1/365, which is .0027. A bigger probability than your numbers suggest for a birthdate on October 5. Maybe it is a typo, but the numbers don’t work. Thought you ought to know.

  36. gaya 5 October 2012

    i was born on the 5 th:)

  37. Chris Semones 4 October 2012

  38. Megan 2 October 2012

    Close..Im October 2nd!

  39. Mamma 28 September 2012

    My son is born on Oct. 5th. He was a planned c-section. We didn’t conceive New Year’s Eve. I know this for sure because my husband and I saw each other once mid January. We were in the process of moving. They took my son at 38 weeks because I had complications. I think it is funny how he has such a common birthday. My brother and best friend share the birthday Oct 6th.

  40. Ayleigh Stoughton 15 September 2012

  45. Sommer Seeley 9 July 2012

    My birthday is February 29th, 1996….I have to celebrate it on the 1st of March usually, it’s strange though, legally I’m 16 but astronomically I’m like 4! Ha….my parent’s didn’t even tell me when my real birthday was until I was like 12 ha. I think it’d be interesting if they we had just literally counted 365 days after my birth and celebrated it on a different day each year! (At least i think that’s how it’d work?) Idk! Ha, But I’ve been looking it up on the internet researching about it, kinda interesting for me!

  46. Alibuscus 4 July 2012

  53. Ronharrell1954 27 May 2012

    I see the October 5th date thrown out as the most common birthdate in a number of places…with (sorry, Luke) no specific citation for supporting that date. Most note that it would likely mean conception on January 1. I’m thinking that somewhere along the line, someone whimsically did the math from January 1 and decided that October 5 must be the date. This table from the December 19, 2006 New York Times (citing Amitabh Chandra, economist, Professor of Public Policy, and Director of Health Policy Research at the Harvard Kennedy School of Government as its source) tells a very different story:

  79. benz0 8 April 2012

    I have to assume that you’ve seen this article by now given that it’s 5 years old, but the NY Times used a Harvard University source who went through US birth records from 1973 to 1999 to rank all birthdays 1-366 in popularity. October 5th came in 79th. 1st place was September 16. May 22 was 141st. The least popular were 2/29 (pretty obvious choice), 12/25, and 1/1. Days directly surrounding Christmas and New Year’s were also quite uncommon, as was Independence Day. I have to assume this isn’t the best way to predict worldwide birthdays, given that different countries/religions are going to have different days that they’re going to give birth around/induce labor before/etc. But this does give a good picture of your birthday relative to other Americans.


  80. Khannaba 7 April 2012

  95. Jam Ward 14 March 2012

    Sorry, I don’t quite understand what you are saying. The researchers carried out the study on 12,576 Americans, and found this to be the most common birthday among them.

    1. Osamason 14 March 2012

      A sample is too small … if you make a study on other group of 12,576 another date could easily come out. Facebook could probably give some more relevant data out from their database, taking millions of humans from all around the world in count.

      1. Jam Ward 15 March 2012

        You have a very good point there actually. I know when first writing this post, we did check to see if any of the large social networking sites had any sort of statistics available, but sadly they didn’t. I may take another look, and if I find anything different from what is said in the above post, I’ll make an update to it.

  96. Myself 14 March 2012

    My grandfather and my husband’s grandmother were born on Oct 5th! I was born on Oct 10th… and my niece (who was DEFINITELY conceived on New Year’s Eve) was born on Oct 3rd :)

    I was born on my grandfather’s birthday – October 5th!

    1. Wolfman 22 May 2012

      Hi there Sarah, that’s a lovely name, by the way (I’ve always found it to be the most beautiful female name in existance). Anyways, I think it’s pretty cool and amazing that your birthday is the same as your grandfather’s. And I thought that my one niece and I being exactly three years and three months apart was amazing.

  124. Shortydo1977 10 January 2012

    My son was born Oct. 5th 2008, but was 6 weeks early, so no NYE conception. A friend of mine is also an Oct. 5th baby AND a friends daughter was born on Oct. 5th.

    My birthday is oct 5th too! I had no idea. I can’t think of anyone else I know who has my birthday…It’s pretty cool to think I have such a common birthday

  142. Sophie 14 November 2011

    I was born on OCTOBER 5TH!!!!! I find the fact that Oct. 5 is the most common date to be born on. I have NEVER met anyone else with my birthday. Pleased to meet you all!!!

  143. Aakanksha Sangwan 13 November 2011

    what about having a birthday on 25 may??

  144. Bforeverlucky4 10 November 2011

    my son was born on oct 5 2010

  145. slsman 9 November 2011

    I was born on oct 5th, and I am shocked to hear this… Though it does make sense

  146. whitenewyear 9 November 2011

    I was born on Oct. 5 !!!

  147. Dcdude6527 4 November 2011

  150. TroysMom 14 October 2011

    My son was born on October 5th, but I know for a fact that he was conceived on Sunday, January 27th. His due date was the 20th; so he was 15 days early… So if the 5th would have been his due date, then he would have been conceived on the 12th.

  151. Kamiles 13 October 2011

    Actually, the government keeps track of this info and publishes National Vital Statistics Reports every year detailing most popular month, day, fertility rates, ages of mothers, etc.for the year in which the data is compiled (it’s often several years behind). As of their latest report, the most common day is Tuesday and the most popular month in September.

  152. Eyesk 13 October 2011

    Ummm… please note that’s data is suspect, and in fact a Harvard/New York Times study shows September 16th to be the most popular birthdate. Of course, maybe that study is flawed, too, but be aware that the “October 5th” claim as the most popular may be more myth and wishful-thinking than fact.

  153. Fitmomoftwins 13 October 2011

    Well, I was actually born on Oct 6, but my due date was oct 4 (on a leap year, 1980)… I feel I fit in this category :)

  154. Ro 11 October 2011

    My son just celebrated his 21st birthday on October 5th!! Happy Belated Birthday to all who share this awesome birthdate!

  155. Kelly Stigelman 11 October 2011

    I became a grandma (nan) for the first time on October 5th. My grandson is also an edition to this stat.

  156. PA124 11 October 2011

  157. lizbsr 10 October 2011

    I know of 4 on my birthday, Oct 5th! Myself, Phil, Julinna, and Schemp from the 3 stooges

  160. Lindamurfin 8 October 2011

    My theory about October births is that in most of North America it is cold in January. So is this fact reversed in countries south of the equator or is October 5 the most common birthday WORLDWIDE?

  161. Miguel 7 October 2011

    My birthday is september 1st so am i lucky, not lucky, or average?

    I always though my birthday (November 14) would be a popular birthdate because it is EXACTLY 9 months after Valentine’s Day

    1. Guest5 27 June 2011

      FYI because each month is not four weeks long November 14 isn’t 40weeks after valentines day, sorry.

  330. derek-1981 8 February 2011

    I was born on october 5th

  331. Jaybfox 6 February 2011

    gestation is actually 10 months, not 9. people have just confused it because it takes almost a month to realize you’re pregnant. so i beg to differ with you

  332. Grace 21 January 2011

    i don’t know anyone with my birthday..August 29th. :P but, i do know an October 5th baby. (:

    1. Anon 15 July 2011

      Michael Jackson’s birthday was August 29th.

  333. Christiantrotter 17 January 2011

    If you conceive on December 31, your child’s due date will be September 23. A New Year’s Eve conception will only produce an October 5 baby if the baby is almost 2 weeks late, which is rare.

    1. Dr. feelyaup 3 April 2011

      It usually takes about 2 weeks to conceive after intercourse, so october 5th is about right.

    2. Jaybfox 6 February 2011

      a baby’s gestation is acually 10 months. and normally most children are born a couple of days after their due date. don’t post a comment unless you know what you’re talking about, idiot.

      1. May 12 February 2011

        gestation is on average between 38-40 weeks(although obviously some of course go over that, and some under); the 10 month gestation period to which you are refering is based on 4 week increments. Pregnancy usually occurs about 10 days to 2 weeks after your last period, but they count the pregnancy from the time of your last period because it is easier to do that, rather than to try and pinpoint which exact day you actually conceived, and that is what brings gestation to 40 weeks/10 months. Oh, and I knew in less than 10 days that I was pregnant with my last child, and there are also pregnancy tests that can detect a pregnancy within 5 days of conception! Before you go around calling other people idiots or calling them confused, you may want to do a little more research yourself and perhaps actually talk with people whom have experience.

  334. Sahansen 15 January 2011

    I was born October 5th, 1991 :)

  335. Thenightseeker 8 January 2011

  336. Kathrynarias 5 January 2011

    So this just crossed my mind to Google the most common birthday, and how crazy to realize that this is the birthdate of my youngest child???? She was not conceived on New Year’s how ever, she was actually do on November 5, and came early.

  337. Rabid_racoon2003 2 January 2011
