The article claims that this data is part of a larger historical trend in which the late-summer months of July, August and September see higher birth rates. The Livescience.com article also presents a CDC health statistics demographer's theory concerning the matter. The demographer suggests that temperature decreases in the winter leads to people spending a larger amount of time indoors, increasing the likelihood of conception and leading to a late summer birth.
