    When I was a kid, I’d work it out for my class, or my school, or whenever I had a birthday list. August & September soon emerged as the most popular month to be born. At least, that’s how I thought of it before puberty.

    An alternate conclusion might be that the holiday season & winter was a popular time to make babies.

    In general: There is a difference between accuracy & precision.

    Accounting for the fact that more humans are born during different times of the year, goes to precision, not accuracy.

    Unwarranted precision is more wrong than a less precise answer within the correctly stated margin of error.

    An imprecise answer reflecting acknowledged unknowns is more truthful, more correct, than an overly precise answer.

    So : 21 Million – (Population of Peru / 365)
