The number of years between Date of Birth and the last birthday prior to or on (Accept DtTm if applicable, Arrive DtTm otherwise).

Age is part of the APACHE II score for Critical Care and ALERT scale used in Medicine.

Function to calculate Age

  • Both formula yields the same AGE values.

ACCESS

  • CCMDB_Age = excel.WorksheetFunction.Floor(CInt(DateDiff("yyyy", DOB, Adm)) + Int(Format(Adm, "mmdd") < Format(DOB, "mmdd")), 1)

SAS

  • Age=floor((intck('month',Birth,R_Adm) - (day(R_Adm) < day(Birth))) / 12)
    • where Birth = Date of Birth and R_Adm = (Accept DtTm if available, Arrive DtTm otherwise)

Decided to keep this for now for cross-checking even though it duplicates the calculation in Access.
