Enter the total yield ($) and the total time (years) into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Yield Per Year. 

Yield Per Year Formula

YPY = Y / T


  • YPY is the Yield Per Year ($/years)
  • Y is the total yield ($)
  • T is the total time (years)

To calculate Yield Per Year, divide the yield earned for the entire time period by the total time in years.

How to Calculate Yield Per Year?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Yield Per Year.

  1. First, determine the total yield ($). 
  2. Next, determine the total time (years). 
  3. Next, gather the formula from above = YPY = Y / T.
  4. Finally, calculate the Yield Per Year.
  5. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

Example Problem : 

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

total yield ($) = 50

total time (years) = 3
