I don't think so no. Only certain superstitious people, but not necessarily just in the USA, many people over the world fear this number too - It's based off the myth about Friday 13th I'm assuming <3

everyone really, it is just a superstition. I live in Canada and in apartments, they skip level thirteen. it is 11, 12, then 14. it is quite silly to me, but there are people who really believe in it.

Yeah that pretty dumb, like if there's a fire the 13th floor will be wiped out but everybody else will be ok! Haha

The unlucky # 13 goes back to Europe in the days before the USA even existed. It's total buIIcrap. But maybe there's something to it, ever heard of Apollo 13? haha

Is not only the # 13, in some cultures the # 4 is the number of death, and they avoid anything with this number on it... like phone numbers, apartments, even table in a restaurant...

Most people say it's an unlucky number but I'm not supersticious.

The way I was told is that there where 12 disciples and Jesus made 13th. Being that he was hung on a cross superstition took it as 13 being a doomed or unlucky number.
