How cool is this!
If you've ever wondered how many people in Aotearoa have the same birthday as you, Statistics New Zealand has got you!
Analysis of births data from 1980 to 2015 shows:
- 30 September is the most common birthday
- the 10 most common birthdays all appear in the 10-day period from 22 September to 1 October
- the least common birthday is 25 December (apart from 29 February, which only occurs in leap years)
- the least common birthdays tend to be around public holidays: 24–27 December, 1–2 January, 6 February (Waitangi Day), 25 April (ANZAC Day).
Feeling so common now lol
