I read somewhere that twins occur 1 in 100 births. But I don't know if that includes both fraternal and identical twins. It also seems twins are more common than that, because I've met tons of people who have twins. Does anyone know?

  2. I do believe "how common twins are" depends a lot on where you are... - Hope2009 on Aug 6, 2015, 10:20 AM

    1. The article is confusing but I think they mean - Serendipitous on Aug 9, 2015, 3:03 PM
