Birth: October compared to the whole year

My sister, Niner, was at a hospital website, comparing whether there were more boys or girls born in a year. (She was doing a paper for her statistics class.) And in the Octobers of 2007 and 2008 both, more girl babies were born than boy babies, but overall, each year, more boys were born.

This does not mean that there are more boys than girls in the world. Though, it might mean that there are more boys in our town. Although it sure doesn’t seem that way.

Maybe I’ll do some studying myself. If I do, I’ll tell you my results. If you do some studying of your own, then please tell me your results in a comment to this post.
