Enter the number of days missed and the number of possible days to be attended into the Absence Rate Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Absence Rate.

## Absence Rate Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Absence Rate.

**ABR = DM / TD * 100**

- Where ABR is the Absence Rate (%)
- DM is the number of days missed
- TD is the number of possible days to be attended

## How to Calculate Absence Rate?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Absence Rate.

Example Problem #1:

- First, determine the number of days missed.
- The number of days missed is given as: 5.

- Next, determine the number of possible days to be attended.
- The number of possible days to be attended is provided as: 50.

- Finally, calculate the Absence Rate using the equation above:

ABR = DM / TD * 100

The values provided above are inserted into the equation below and computed.

ABR = 5 / 50 * 100 = 10.00 (%)

Example Problem #2:** **

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

number of days missed = 6

number of possible days to be attended = 30

Test your knowledge using the equation and check your answer with the calculator..
