    Mother's Day Data

    DATA: Check out the US Census Bureau's Mother's Day fact sheet for a few interesting bits of data. A few highlights:

    • 25.1: Average age of women when they give birth for the first time — a record high. The average age has risen nearly four years since 1970.

    • 1-in-32: The odds of a woman delivering twins. Her odds of having triplets or other multiple births was approximately 1-in-540.

    • August: The most popular month in which to have a baby, with 359,000 births taking place that month in 2002. July, with 358,000, was just a shade behind.

    • Tuesday: The most popular day of the week in which to have a baby, with an average of almost 13,000 births taking place on Tuesdays during 2002.
