Abstract: In a previous paper the first author showed that multiples of 3 prefer to have an even number of ones in their binary digit expansion. In this paper it is shown that in some general classes of naturally defined sequences, the probability that a member of a particular sequence has an even number of ones in its binary expansion is $ 1/2$.
