The silly season is in full swing and a possible birthday fallacy makes it's eagerly awaited appearance, this time in the Telegraph. You can find it here
The article itself is very poorly written, confusing birth dates, and dates of conception. But from the content we can see the Trojan number was 800,000 and that of children conceived in the first quarter of the year 8.9% had learning difficulties compared with 7.6% of those conceived between July and September. Usually with these things they quote months, but the grouping into seasons suggests some statistical chicanery has been employed, but I think we could guess that already.
The reason I ask is this the birthday fallacy is that the numbers are large, and therefore more likely to be significant. Obviously this all pre-supposes accurate diagnosis etc. A link to the full data would yield some answers.
