Chronological Age

First, let’s talk about chronological age. In the United States, your age starts from the second you were born. At your time of birth, you were born at zero years, zero days, zero hours, zero minutes, and zero seconds. It went up from there!

Until your first birthday, your age will be measured by seconds, minutes, hours, days, and months. Once you have been alive for 365 days, your age is measured by years.

What Year Was A 16 Year Old Born?

Now, for the reason we’re all here! The short answer is someone who is 16 years old right now would either be born in 2007 or 2006. It all depends on whether they’ve had their birthday yet this year or not.

If you are 16 years old today, you’d be born in 2007. If you haven’t had your birthday yet this year and are currently 16, they you were born in 2006. Later this year, you will turn 17 years old.

Age Formula

Now, let me teach you how to find out when anyone was born without using an age calculator or a birthday calculator. It’s really easy!

The first and most important thing you need to know is if that person has had their birthday this year or not. If they have had their birthday, take the current year, subtract how old they are now, and you will have the year they were born in.

If they haven’t had their birthday yet this year, there is one thing you will need to do differently. Subtract how old they are from the current year, but then subtract one more year!

You have to subtract that extra year, because they haven’t had their birthday. That’s the only difference!

How many days old is a 16 year old?

There are 365 1/4 days in every year. There’s one extra day every four years for leap day. So to find out how many days a 16 year old has been alive, multiply 365 1/4 and 16 together. They are 5,844 days old on their birthday. That includes extra days for leap years!

Then you’ll need to count how many full months it is after their birthday to the current date. Times the number of months by 30.

Then count how many days it is from that date until the current date. Then you will have their exact age!

FAQs

Here are some common questions:

How old are you if you were born in 2005?

How old would you be in your were born in 2006?

It depends on whether or not you’ve had your birthday. If you’ve already had your birthday, then you’re 17. If you haven’t had your birthday yet, then you’re 16 years old right now.

It depends on whether or not you’ve had your birthday this year or not. If you have already had your birthday, then you’re 19 years old. If you haven’t had your birthday yet, then 18 years old is their given age.

What is my actual age if I was born in 2015?

It depends on whether or not you’ve had your birthday this year or not. If you have already had your birthday, then you’re 8 years old. If you haven’t had your birthday yet, then you’re 7 years of age. You’ll be 8 at a future date!

The Bottom Line

The bottom line is 16 year olds were either born in 2006 or 2007. If they are 16 years old on today’s date, they’d be born in 2007.

If they haven’t had their next birthday yet this year and are currently 16, they were born in 2006. Later this year, they will turn 17.
