We calculate Dudley's birthday from the fact that in the first book Harry receives his letters from Hogwarts on July 24th.

At the same time, he is moved to Dudley's second bedroom. There he finds a camera that Dudley got for his birthday, which is described as broken and one month old.

From history we also know that this year, 1991, Dudley's birthday fell on a Saturday, making it very likely that his date of birth is June 23, 1980.
