How to get age from DOB in MySQL?

MySQLMySQLi Database

To get age from DOB, you can use the TIMESTAMPDIFF() function. Following is the syntax −

select TIMESTAMPDIFF(YEAR, yourColumnName, CURRENT_DATE) AS anyAliasName from yourTableName;

Let us first create a table −

mysql> create table DemoTable
   -> (
   -> Id int NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT PRIMARY KEY,
   -> DateOfBirth datetime
   -> );
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.73 sec)

Insert some records in the table using insert command −

mysql> insert into DemoTable(DateOfBirth) values('1998-06-04 12:30:00');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.18 sec)

mysql> insert into DemoTable(DateOfBirth) values('2000-01-31 04:10:20');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.14 sec)

mysql> insert into DemoTable(DateOfBirth) values('2010-12-01 03:50:45');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.24 sec)

Display all records from the table using select statement −

mysql> select *from DemoTable;

Output

+----+---------------------+
| Id | DateOfBirth         |
+----+---------------------+
| 1  | 1998-06-04 12:30:00 |
| 2  | 2000-01-31 04:10:20 |
| 3  | 2010-12-01 03:50:45 |
+----+---------------------+
