All Top 1000 raw name data used by NamePlayground.com is from the USA Social Security Administration Top 1000 Baby Name Data
. This data does not list every single individual
with the name, only the names of people that have been included in the SSA data in the United States between the years 1880 to 2006
and are in the Top 1000 names of each year. Data is processed for name similarity using proprietary algorithms.
Please Note! The "Total" populations listed are actually the totals for
the populations in the Top 1000, not the entire USA population. If a name
is not listed as being used in a particular year, that simply means that
not enough people used that name to make it into the Top 1000 names.
Depending on the year, there may acutally be hundreds of people using that
name. (For example, in 2005, if a female name were used fewer than 241 times, it
was not listed in the Top 1000.) The data used on this site should be used
only for comparing trends, not for actual population statistics.
