# How to Calculate the Difference between Two Dates | Nickzom Calculator

**Last Updated on February 14, 2024**

Have you ever wondered how you can know the **difference between two dates** down to the days, hours, minutes and/or seconds? I bet many people have and are still confused. Not anymore, because with one calculator, you can solve the difference between two dates in a jiffy.

I can remember when I thought of it. I wanted to know the number of days remaining for me to be done with my **National Youth Service Corp** Scheme. Then, I decided to develop an app that could tell me the difference in hours between two dates and also provide me with the information of other units as well. Curious much? yes.

Today, I would very much like to inform you that you can also find out the remaining seconds or minutes for the year of 2018 to be over.

To get answers for the difference between two dates is very easy. All you need are the two dates (**start date** and **end date**).

For the purpose of this post made on the 16th of December, 2018. I would like to know the **number of minutes** left for me to see 2019.

Therefore, our start date is **16 December, 2018** and our end date is **1 January, 2019**.

It’s time to enter the values for start date and end date. Since we want to know the number of minutes till the end of 2018. Our start date remains constant, since today is 16 Dec, 2018. The end date becomes **01 Jan, 2019**. Since 01 Jan, 2019 is not a day in 2018 we **do not** **tick** include end date (Add 1 Day).
