A Study of Birthday Pattern of School Students using Statistical Measures

Prakash S. Chougule

Abstract: The tradition of celebrating the day of birth of an individual is thought to have existed since the ancient times. Depending on the culture, religious beliefs, and the geographic location, occasions for ritual performance differ greatly. The problem is to determine that the birthday of randomly selected group of people have uniformly distributed. If one assumes for simplicity that a year contains 365 days and that days are distributed in to twelve months and each month is equally likely to be the birthday month of a randomly selected person, then in a group of people there are twelve possible combinations of birthdays. In this study we collect the information through questionnaires and collected data are analyzed using statistical measures and our study shows that the birthday pattern is not uniform over the months of the year.
