Predictions by Statistics - June and July

Crystal ba;ll predictions If you believe as I do that astrology is another form of personality profiling, then you might also believe that regular math and statistics can also help to predict the future. Here are some Spring and Summer statistical predictions of human behavior as reported in the New York Post. This data was culled from various scientific sources:

MID-JUNE: Most likely to get hired Summertime is particularly popular, with a large spike in hiring in the middle of June. Lehmann attributes this to a seasonal rise in summer jobs. My guess would be that Twitter has lots of young people [read: college students] who often work during the summe.

JUNE 17, 2011 — Happiest day Good news! It’s not all gloom and doom — there are several days in 2011 when you can look forward to feeling jovial. For the ultimate in bliss, hang out in Central Park on the third Friday in June. In fact, book that day off now! According to Arnall, the third Friday in June is the happiest day of the year, and Lehmann and Mislove say Central Park is the most joyful city spot.

Anecdotally, when we mapped things out, you see a tendency for Central Park to be the one place where people have happier tweets than the rest of the city. You can also expect to feel happier on Sundays and holidays. You tweet much happier tweets on Valentine’s Day, Thanksgiving and New Year’s.

JULY: Most likely to give birth According to the Centers for Disease Control, more newborns arrive during the late summer and early fall months than any other time of the year, peaking in July — 375,384 babies were born during that month in 2008. If you’re a February baby, you’re a rarity — that’s the month when the fewest babies are born: 338,521 in 2008, according to the CDC. As for days of the week, Tuesday was the most common day for babies to be born in 2008, while Sunday was the least common. “We can’t say [why this is] with any specificity, although it certainly has to do with planning operating procedures during the week,” says CDC demographer Dr. Paul Sutton. “Saturdays and Sundays are the least popular because [there are fewer] planned procedures.”
