Answer 1 :

Based on the logic for this other answer I did the function for this calculation.

The date() faults of PHP has #.

The difference compared to the other answer is that I only use the DateTime object here

function countSemanasMes ($ano, $mes) {

    $data = new DateTime("$ano-$mes-01");
    $dataFimMes = new DateTime($data->format('Y-m-t'));

    $numSemanaInicio = $data->format('W');
    $numSemanaFinal  = $dataFimMes->format('W') + 1;

    // Última semana do ano pode ser semana 1
    $numeroSemanas = ($numSemanaFinal < $numSemanaInicio)  
        ? (52 + $numSemanaFinal) - $numSemanaInicio
        : $numSemanaFinal - $numSemanaInicio;

    return $numeroSemanas;

}

DateTime considers the first day of the week to be Monday. If I wanted to be considered a different day, we can include a parameter for the first day of the week, as pointed out in the comments:

/**
 * Calcula o número de semanas de um mês
 * 
 * @param int $ano
 * @param int $mes
 * @param int $primeiroDiaSemana Intervalo 1 (Segunda-Feira) até 7 (domingo), segundo ISO-8601
 * @return int
 */
function countSemanasMes ($ano, $mes, $primeiroDiaSemana = 7) 
{
    $primeiroDiaMes = new DateTime("$ano-$mes-01");
    $ultimoDiaMes = new DateTime($primeiroDiaMes->format('Y-m-t'));

    $numSemanaInicio = $primeiroDiaMes->format('W');
    $numSemanaFinal  = $ultimoDiaMes->format('W') + 1;

    // Última semana do ano pode ser semana 1
    $numeroSemanas = ($numSemanaFinal < $numSemanaInicio)  
        ? (52 + $numSemanaFinal) - $numSemanaInicio
        : $numSemanaFinal - $numSemanaInicio;

    if ($primeiroDiaMes->format('N') > $primeiroDiaSemana) 
        $numeroSemanas--;

    if ($ultimoDiaMes->format('N') < $primeiroDiaSemana) 
        $numeroSemanas--;

    return $numeroSemanas;
}

    


Answer 2 :

According to your documentation , the Date() function allows the W parameter, which returns the number of the week of a given day.

Then, to calculate the number of weeks, subtract the Week Number from the last day of the month desired by the Week Number of the first.

I’m not a PHP programmer, but I’ve created a snippet that should do the calculation correctly for you.

<?php

$date = new DateTime();
$query_date = '2010-02-04';

$source_date = strtotime($query_date);

$dat_ini = new DateTime(date('Y-m-01', $source_date));
$dat_fin = new DateTime(date('Y-m-t', $source_date));

$NumeroSemanas = (int)$dat_fin->format('W') - (int)$dat_ini->format('W') + 1;
?>

    


Answer 3 :

This is a problem that has several ways of implementing a solution. My idea would be to take the amount of days a month has, divide by seven (the number of days in a week) and get the whole value of that result.

Translating in code:

<?php
function getNumSemanas($mes, $ano, $diaInicialSemana = 'Sunday', $calendario = CAL_GREGORIAN) {
    $diasEmUmMes = cal_days_in_month($calendario, $mes, $ano);
    $numSemanas = 1;
    for ($i=1; $i<=$diasEmUmMes; $i++) {
        if (date('l', strtotime("$i-$mes-$ano")) === $diaInicialSemana && !($i === 1 && date('l', strtotime("$i-$mes-$ano")) === $diaInicialSemana)) {
            $numSemanas++;
        }
    }

    return $numSemanas;
}

    


Answer 4 :

The function below finds the number of weeks in a given month, assuming Monday as the first day of the week.

function weeks_in_month($month, $year) {
// Start of month
$start = mktime(0, 0, 0, $month, 1, $year);

// End of month
$end = mktime(0, 0, 0, $month, date('t', $start), $year);

// Start week
$start_week = date('W', $start);

// End week
$end_week = date('W', $end);

if ($end_week < $start_week) { // Month wraps
  return ((52 + $end_week) - $start_week) + 1;
}

return ($end_week - $start_week) + 1;
}


echo '08/2014 tem: ' . weeks_in_month('08', '2014') . ' semanas';

// retorno
// 08/2014 tem: 5 semanas

Answer 5 :

Here’s a possible solution:

/**
 * Calcula a quantidade de Semanas em um mes
 * 
 * @param string $mesAno Mes e Ano no formato MM/AAAA. Ex.: 05/2014
 * @return int Quantidade de semanas no mes
 */
function quantidadeSemanasMes($mesAno)
{
    $data = '01/'.$mesAno;
    $start = DateTime::createFromFormat('d/m/Y', $data);

    $end = clone $start;
    $end->add(new DateInterval("P1M"));
    $end->sub(new DateInterval("P1D"));

    return ceil(($start->format('w') + $end->format('d')) / 7);
}

echo quantidadeSemanasMes('02/2012'); // retorna 5
