I increasingly write the date in that order too.

There are two advantages to it.

Firstly, there is no ambiguity in whether you are writing US or UK date orders - the date order in unambiguous (there could be ambiguity if some culture were to use YYYY-DD-MM dates, but none do, so the date if obviously YYYY-MM-DD).

The other way of avoiding such ambiguity is what the Hungarians used to traditionally do, which is to write the month in roman numerals, and the date and year in Arabic numerals.

Secondly, it makes sorting dates a lot easier (i.e. since the most significant value, the year, is at the front, a character sort will automatically sort dates first in year order, then in month within year, and then in day within month).

Sean - You are a handsome lad, and your sister is quite lovely.

There's piccys of alot of us somewhere around here.  Keep looking and I'm sure you'll find them. :)

Oh, I also forgot to add that that is also the ISO standard date format (ISO 8601).

The international standard date notation is

    YYYY-MM-DD


where YYYY is the year in the usual Gregorian calendar, MM is the month of the year between 01 (January) and 12 (December), and DD is the day of the month between 01 and 31.

For example, the fourth day of February in the year 1995 is written in the standard notation as

    1995-02-04


Other commonly used notations are e.g. 2/4/95, 4/2/95, 95/2/4, 4.2.1995, 04-FEB-1995, 4-February-1995, and many more. Especially the first two examples are dangerous, because as both are used quite often in the U.S. and in Great Britain and both can not be distinguished, it is unclear whether 2/4/95 means 1995-04-02 or 1995-02-04. The date notation 2/4/5 has at least six reasonable interpretations (assuming that only the twentieth and twenty-first century are reasonable candidates in our life time).

Advantages of the ISO 8601 standard date notation compared to other commonly used variants:
  • easily readable and writeable by software (no ‘JAN’, ‘FEB’, ... table necessary)
  • easily comparable and sortable with a trivial string comparison
  • language independent
  • can not be confused with other popular date notations
  • consistency with the common 24h time notation system, where the larger units (hours) are also written in front of the smaller ones (minutes and seconds)
  • strings containing a date followed by a time are also easily comparable and sortable (e.g. write “1995-02-04 22:45:00”)
  • the notation is short and has constant length, which makes both keyboard data entry and table layout easier
  • identical to the Chinese date notation, so the largest cultural group (>25%) on this planet is already familiar with it :-)
  • date notations with the order “year, month, day” are in addition already widely used e.g. in Japan, Korea, Hungary, Sweden, Finland, Denmark, and a few other countries and people in the U.S. are already used to at least the “month, day” order
  • a 4-digit year representation avoids overflow problems after 2099-12-31
As dates will look a little bit strange anyway starting with 2000-01-01 (e.g. like 1/1/0), it has been suggested that the year 2000 is an excellent opportunity to change to the standard date notation.
