How many people are born each day in the US?

I'm seeking a table that shows how many people were born in the US on a given exact date (ie, 5603 births on January 1, 2003). I've found a number of birthday frequency rankings, but the raw data has been surprisingly elusive!

Ideally the table would have two columns, one for the exact date and the other for the
number of births on that date, so 365 rows per year (366 for a leap year). The more years the better!

Google BigQuery has the raw data as a demo public dataset:
Describes all United States births registered in the 50 States, the District of Columbia, and New York City from 1969 to 2008.
You'll need to do some work to get it into the format of the table you describe.

Here's some analysis of this data 1, 2, 3, 4 (the last of these is most impressive IMO).
