The Most Popular Month for Birthdays

Amitabh Chandra, a professor of public policy at the Harvard University, earlier published a data table detailing how many babies were born in the United States on each date between 1973 and 1999. September 16th happens to be the most common birthday while December 25th is the least popular birthday
Matt Stiles, data journalist at NPR, converted this NYT table into a static heatmap for easy visualization (the darker the color, the higher the probability of births happening on that date) and Andy Kriebel made an interactive heatmap of the same data using Tableau – this version lets you hover over any cell and you can see the underlying data.

How Vancouver high school catchment areas compare
About half of all Vancouver School Board students attend a school outside their catchment area, and a majority of those chose schools on the city’s west side.
The result is empty desks in the east and crowded schools in west. It’s a problem playing out across the country, and some fear that by jumping boundaries, parents are undermining schools in some parts of their communities.
