Question details

Figure 1 Correlation between Birthday and Draft Number is-0.223 On December 1, 1969, Congress instituted a random selection process for the military draft. All 366 possible birth dates were assigned a number (i.e. Jan 1st was 1, Feb 1st was 32, March 15th was 75, etc.) were placed in plastic capsules in a rotating drum and were selected one by one. The first date drawn from the drum received draft number one and eligible men born on that date were drafted first. In a truly random lottery there should be no relationship between the date and the draft number. On January 4, 1970, the New York Times ran a long article, Statisticians Charge Draft Lottery Was Not Random. It made the point that those with birthdates later in the year seemed to have had more than their share of low lottery numbers and hence were more likely to be drafted.
