Joshua S. Gans ; Andrew Leigh
There is a commonplace notion that full moons affect natality and mortality. To test this theory, Joshua S. Gans and Andrew Leigh obtain daily births and deaths data from Australia, covering all 10,592 days from 1 January 1975 to 31 December 2003. They find that full moons are not associated with any significant change in the number of conceptions, births, or deaths.
