 ```How many couples are born on the same day and the same year in the United States? How many couples are born on the same day and the same year in the world?``` Request for Question Clarification by leapinglizard-ga on 27 Oct 2004 22:05 PDT ```Are you looking for empirical numbers or for a statistical estimate? I can supply the latter but not the former. leapinglizard``` Clarification of Question by davejr23-ga on 28 Oct 2004 10:44 PDT ```Well, if all possible I would like to know the exact amount of at least the amount of people born on the same exact date and year in the U.S. If you were to come up with a statistical estimate, I'd like to know how you would come up with it.```

 ```I dated a girl for about a year that was born 25 hours after me. Can't say that I've ever heard of anyone else that is, or has ever been, in a similar situation. Also, I've never been so comfortable with someone as I was with her. It's funny how these technicalities of chance can produce such an effect.```

 ```Although not exactly on target, my parents were born on the same day, September 12, exactly on year apart.```

 ```Statistically, you could make some assumptions to give you a basic answer. The odds of a partner having the same exact birthday would be around 1/366. If you assume that couples are typically within 7 years of each other's age (just a guess), then the odds of your partner being born in the same year as you is around 1/13. A very simple calculation would then tell you that the odds of both events (same day, same year) would be 1/4758. You could then get the number of married couples from the census bureau or similar organization and divide the number of couples by 4758.```

 ```Bit if an aside- I've never really been one to go in for starsigns and stuff, but a friend of mine recently pointed out that out of a group of about 45 friends on holiday together, all but about 3 had the same 6 or 7 starsigns- and most of those were born in the spring/summer. This may be a bit of a coincidence, but i do find that most of the people i get on well with have birthdays in the spring and summer. Also, as a 'summer baby' myself, most of my boyfriends have had birthdays in Spring, particularly April.```

 ```This is a good question. it can be possible that the all couples are from the exact date and exact year too. So one can not say exactly that there will be some thing as 1 in 1000 or 1 in 100 of them. But science has surveyed in many countries and found that the probalility of happening of such things are 15 in a life time. Hope this is ur answers. Regards, Almighty786```

 ```I belong to one of these rare couples. My partner and I have known each other since we were 12 years old and we are now 47. We were both born on the exact day and year, August 26, 1957, only I was born at 12:01pm and he was born at 3:25pm. We were born in NC only an hour away from each other. We went to Jr. High and High School together and met up again at our 20th High School reunion in 1995. He emailed me last May, insisted on driving from NC to IN to take me out for dinner and the rest is history. We are like mirror images to each other. We share the same sense of humor, love for the same music and can predict what the other is thinking just my looking into our eyes. We have compared our lives over and over and it is still quite amazing how parallel they have been. We both have lived on the cutting edge most of our lives as Virgos love drama, extreme knowledge (philosophical) and excitement. The strangest thing is when we comprend in the exact same way, where something happens, and we both either reach for, go for, or say the exact same thing in response to the given situation. We have all done this at times but not ALL the time! It is fun to see where our differences are since there are so few.```
