How many workdays between two dates?
The calculator evaluates number of working days and holidays for a period of time. The calculator based on the U.S. federal holidays table recognised in most states.
The following calculator estimates the number of workdays and holidays for a given time span. It assumes Saturday and Sunday as non-workday as well as most commonly recognized U.S. federal holidays.
To use different holiday rules, for example, the specific holidays for a particular state, you may edit the holiday table.
In this table, you may enter two types of holiday rule:
- n-th weekday - defines the holiday as 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th or last weekday in a month, e.g., September, second Monday.
- Nearest workday - defines holiday by a day of the month, if the holiday is observed on Monday, if the holiday falls on Sunday, or Friday if the holiday falls on Saturday. E.g., January, 1st
Please keep in mind that Date 2 is not included in the calculation, so to calculate the number of workdays in 2017th you need to enter Jan, 1st, 2017 in the Date 1 field and Jan, 1st 2018 in the Date 2 field.
P.S. At least 24 states legally recognize Juneteenth (June, 19th) the official holiday in 2022. When they are in the majority, we will add this holiday to the list by default, but in the meantime, residents of these states can calculate workdays at this link: Workday calculator with Juneteenth.
