|A new study by the Office for National Statistics indicates that a person's month of birth could make them more likely to end up in a certain occupation, the Daily Mail reported.
|In January, general practitioners and debt collectors were found to be the professions with the greatest percentage above the monthly average. A February birth appears to increase the chances of being an artist, and March is good for pilots. April and May are said to have a fairly even spread of professions.
|Meanwhile, births in the summer months mean a much lower chance of becoming a high-earning football player, doctor or dentist.
|For those born in September, the two occupations with the greatest percentage above average were sports players and physicists. The two jobs least likely to be taken up by September babies were found to be bricklayers and hairdressers, while December is said to be rich with dentists.
Certain jobs, notably chief executives of large companies and real estate agents, are spread relatively evenly throughout the year.
