WEEKUw. |

Details |

The WEEKUw. informat reads the format of the number-of-week within the year, and then returns a SAS date value by using the U algorithm. If the input does not contain a year expression, then WEEKUw. uses the current year as the year expression, which is the default. If the input does not contain a day expression, then WEEKUw. uses the first day of the week as the day expression, which is the default.

The U Algorithm calculates the SAS date value using the number-of-week value within the year (Sunday is considered the first day of the week). The number-of-week value is represented as a decimal number in the range 0-53, with a leading zero and maximum value of 53. For example, the fifth week of the year would be represented as 05.

The inputs to the WEEKUw. informat are the same date for the following example. The current year is 2003.

The WEEKUw. informat reads the number-of-week value within the year. Sunday is the first day of the week, as a decimal number in the range 0-53, with a leading zero. The WEEKVw. informat reads the number-of-week value as a decimal number in the range 01-53. Weeks begin on a Monday and week 1 of the year is the week that includes both January 4th and the first Thursday of the year. If the first Monday of January is the 2nd, 3rd, or 4th, the preceding days are part of the last week of the preceding year. The WEEKWw. informat reads the week-number-of-year value as a decimal number in the range 00-53, with Monday as the first day of week 1.
