Attempting to calculate age in sas

Attempting to calculate age in sas

Attempting to calculate age in sas

data table2;
set table1;
Age = Birthdate-TODAY();
format TotalSalary dollar12.2;

When I run this I get a large number for the Age.
ie 209501348

I should only get a 2 digit number

RE: Attempting to calculate age in sas

Have a go at this

data table2;
set table1;

tday = date();

age = floor((intck('month',Birthdate,tday)- (day(tday) < day(Birthdate))) / 12);

Where Birthdate is the date you want to see there age from.

RE: Attempting to calculate age in sas

Why cant you do it with just using the INTCK function without all the rules?

age = intck('year',Birthdate,date());
