# How Many WeekDays Are In A Year?

The number of weekdays in the United States is between 260-262 for a standard 5-day workweek. By calculating the deducting the weekends from the number of days in a year, we find the number of weekdays in a year.

## How to calculate the weekdays in a year?

Knowing how many weekdays there are in a year is very important for planning, scheduling, and budgeting.

To calculate the number of weekdays, we need to consider a set of factors: whether it's a standard year or a leap year, the number of weekend days, and the number of working days in a week. For this, the following calculation, we will consider a workweek, a 5-day period from Monday to Friday. Practically, we do follow this formula for this calculation:

Weekdays = Calendar days - Weekend days

Here is how we define the terms in the formula:

• Weekdays = 5-day work week (Monday to Friday)
• Calendar days = the number of days from Jan 1 to Dec 31 in the year
• Weekend = Sundays and Saturdays of a year

Using this formula, in 2024, we will have 366 - 104 = 262 weekdays.

## How many weekdays in a month?

The table below details the number of weekdays in each month of 2024. We use the same method to calculate the weekly days: subtracting the number of weekends from the number of calendar days per month.
