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:

1. First, determine the number of days missed.
• The number of days missed is given as: 5.
2. Next, determine the number of possible days to be attended.
• The number of possible days to be attended is provided as: 50.
3. 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
