Answer: 1.049 in 2005 4138349 live births in the US in the year 2005. The calculation will work for any year, you just need to find the number of births in that year. Now divide that number by the number of seconds in a year. 1 year = 31 556 926 seconds so we have 4138349/31556926 is about .13113 births per second. Now multiply this by 8 and we have 1.049, so about one live birth per 8 seconds. Here is the birth data, in case you want to compare years.
