How to Calculate Date from Week Number in JavaScript?

Spread the love

To calculate date from week number in JavaScript, we can use the JavaScript date setDate and getDate methods.

For instance, we can write:

const getSundayFromWeekNum = (weekNum, year) => {
  const sunday = new Date(year, 0, (1 + (weekNum - 1) * 7));
  while (sunday.getDay() !== 0) {
    sunday.setDate(sunday.getDate() - 1);
  return sunday;

console.log(getSundayFromWeekNum(10, 2021))

We create the getSundayFromWeekNum function that takes the weekNum and year parameters that we use to get the Sunday of the given year and week number.

In the function, we create a JavaScript date with the Date constructor with year, 0, (1 + (weekNum - 1) * 7) to get the date given weekNum and year.

Then we add a while loop to subtract 1 day from the sundday date until we reach a Sunday.

Finally, we return that result.

Then when we console log, we get Sun Feb 28 2021 00:00:00 GMT-0800 (Pacific Standard Time).
