# Birthday Calculator

Calculate your **exact age from a birth date**, or the chronological age of another person in years, months, and days. It can also be used to see when your next birthday is, or how many days remain until your next birthday. Alternatively, it can be used as a **birth date calculator** (DoB calculator) for a deceased person with a known age and date of death.

* * Calculate your exact age based on date of birth

This online birthday calculator makes it possible to calculate the precise age of a person to the day, given the date of birth is known with the same precision. Just enter the birthday and press calculate to see how many full years, months, weeks, and days have elapsed since the date of birth.

If you want to see how old you will be at any given point in the future, or how old were you at a specific date in the past, simply enter that date in the second input field before pressing the calculation button.

* * When is my next birthday?

This software can also be used to determine the date of your next birthday as well as how many days until it comes. If you are asking yourself how long until your next birthday party, then the birthday calculator is an easy way to find out without doing any time difference math yourself.

The tool can be used to find the time you have to plan a birthday party for a friend or relative as well. Obviously, you need to know their date of birth, or at least the month and day of the month (if unsure of the year of birth, enter any year prior to the current year).

* * How old are you precisely?

The answer to this question may be somewhat complicated if an exact solution is sought. This **birthday age calculator** is based on the way human age is calculated in most Western countries. According to it a person who was just born has an age of 0 years, 0 months, and 0 days. The age consequently becomes 1 year, 0 months, and 0 days exactly a year from their birth. This would be on their first birthday. Consequently the second birthday is when a person becomes two years of age, and so on.

Sometimes a person would cite their ** complete age** as in the example above, and that is straightforward enough. However, sometimes one would say their

**, which is the current age plus one, which may make the answer ambiguous. Citing a chronological age with completed years, months, and days is the most accurate answer one can give.**

*running*age* * How to determine the DoB of a deceased person?

In genealogy, one may sometimes be interested in determining the date of birth (DoB) of a deceased person for which the known information is only the date on which death occurred, as well as their approximate age in years, or sometimes years and months. Computing an approximate DoB is then a task of time subtraction, the outcome of which would be as precise as the accuracy with which the age of the person is known. Our birth date calculator can perform the time calculations for you

For example, if it is known only that the person was 65 years old at the time of their passing, then the date of birth can be determined only approximately, with up to a year of difference. If the age is known more precisely, the DoB can be calculated more accurately.
