AGE REACHED DURING THE YEAR

Statistics Directorate    
French Equivalent: Âge atteint au cours de l'année

Definition:
The number of complete years lived at the end of the year in question.

Context:
For example, on 14 July 1997, a person born on 22 August 1971 will be 26 during the year (on 22 August 1997, i.e. before 1 January 1998). This is the case for all of the 1971 generation. The age reached during the year is also equal to the year in question minus the year of birth (1997-1971=26).
