US data for 2006. Please note: this chart does NOT show trends by year.

Average for all days: 11,686.

Monday: 12,079
Tuesday: 13,397
Wendesday: 13,482
Thursday: 13,444
Friday: 13,151
Saturday: 8,745
Sunday: 7,587

So yeah, the number of people is less than 6. Closer to 5.

I hadn't realized that the numbers were skewed that far away from weekends.

And what's going on on Monday? Is that golf day?


But I'd stand by my prior statement that, ignoring the census data, for point of argument, the answer is 6.

Then again, since the Wiz is a former census worker, should we really ignore the census data? ;)
Superstitions are silly, childish, irrational rituals, born out of fear of the unknown. But how much does it cost to knock on wood? 😁 Note that the same could be said for Religion. I.E. Religion is nothing more than organized superstition. 🤗

I don't know if we can assume 06 to be a typical year or not, or whether even there are trends over the years or not.

The exact length of a pregnancy can't be known. But there are ways to induce labor, and there are C-sections. My sister in law, for example, after delivering her first child by C-section after hours of labor, scheduled like procedures for her other two children. Naturally those two were born on weekdays.

I think there are also ways of delaying labor (which would be useful to prevent premature births). But I'm on shaky ground on that.
