Documentation icon Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

This template returns the number of full years between two specified dates. If the second set of parameters is not included, it will return the number of full years between a specified date and today's date.

Syntax:
{{age|year1|month1|day1|year2|month2|day2}} or
{{age|year1|month1|day1}}
Examples:
{{age|1989|7|23|2003|7|14}} returns "13"
{{age|1989|7|23}} returns "25"
When using this template to calculate a person's age at death or a person's age on a specified date (rather than the person's current age), please substitute it into the page.
Example: {{subst:age|1989|7|23|2003|7|14}}
When entering dates before the Common Era, use astronomical year numbering: 1 BCE is represented by 0, 2 BCE by -1, 3 BCE by -2 etc. For example, the following expression returns the number of full years elapsed since the battle of Cannae, which took place on August 2, 216 BCE:
{{age|-215|8|2}} returns "2229"

(BCE is exactly the same as BC, so August 2, 216 BCE is also August 2, 216 BC)

Note:
This template does not check for incorrect input:
{{age|1980|7|14|1993|6|233}} returns "12" (surplus days do not count as extra months)
{{age|1980|7|14|1993|88|14}} returns "13" (surplus months do not count as extra years)
