Would this correctly result in random assignment?
A researcher assigns students to one of three conditions based on the month of their birth. If they were born in January, April, July, or October, they are assigned to condition A. February, May, August, and November births are assigned to B. March, June, September and December births are assigned to C
Do a little research then take a shot. what do you think?
Stats for the US and Canada show that in North America, the most births occur in September.
Wonder if there is correlation based on the fact that Sept is 9 months after all those Christmas and New Year holidays??
