The total number of days between Thursday, November 16th, 2017 and Wednesday, October 16th, 2019 is 699 days.

This is equal to 1 year and 11 months.

This does not include the end date, so it's accurate if you're measuring your age in days, or the total days between the start and end date. But if you want the duration of an event that includes both the starting date and the ending date, then it would actually be 700 days.

If you're counting workdays or weekends, there are 499 weekdays and 200 weekend days.

If you include the end date of Oct 16, 2019 which is a Wednesday, then there would be 500 weekdays and 200 weekend days including both the starting Thursday and the ending Wednesday.

699 days is equal to 99 weeks and 6 days.

The total time span from 2017-11-16 to 2019-10-16 is 16,776 hours.

This is equivalent to 1,006,560 minutes.

You can also convert 699 days to 60,393,600 seconds.

This site provides an online date calculator to help you find the difference in the number of days between any two calendar dates. Simply enter the start and end date to calculate the duration of any event. You can also use this tool to determine how many days have passed since your birthday, or measure the amount of time until your baby's due date. The calculations use the Gregorian calendar, which was created in 1582 and later adopted in 1752 by Britain and the eastern part of what is now the United States. For best results, use dates after 1752 or verify any data if you are doing genealogy research. Historical calendars have many variations, including the ancient Roman calendar and the Julian calendar. Leap years are used to match the calendar year with the astronomical year. If you're trying to figure out the date that occurs in X days from today, switch to the Days From Now calculator instead.
