No, 2000 was not part of the 1990s. The 90s were all the years from 1990 to 1999. The fact that the decade finished in 1999, is one of the reasons people thought it was the end of the 20th century. A decade is a period of 10 years. We often think of them in terms of a second last digit the years start with, like the 80s, 90s etc. This means the decades as we think of them are 1 year out of synch with a standard 1 to 10 type of decade. In truth a decade can be any period of 10 years, so 1994 to 2003 was just as much a decade as 1990 to 1999 or 1991 to 2000.

What is last year of decade 1999 or 2000?

Given that there was no year 0, the first decade would have been from year 1 to year 10 (inclusive). Adding ten-year intervals would lead to the result that the last year of the decade was 2000 and not 1999. However, that is the view of a purist mathematician - something of a minority view.

What year begins the second decade of the 21st century?

2011Because the common calendar starts with year 1, its firstfull decade is the years 1 to 10, the second decade from 11 to 20, and so on. So while the "2000s" comprises the years 2000 to 2009, the "201st decade" spans 2001 to 2010.

What is the present decade called?

Any decade is known by the term most commonly used. This decade will be known as the 2000's (as in 'two thousand nine'). This can change over time - in twenty years who knows what it will be referred as. Back in the early 1900's, the first decade was known as the 'aughts' (as in 'aught oh nine').In the UK the decade covering 2000-2009 became known as the noughties, an expression coined by mixing the words nought (meaning zero) and naughty.Why the Brits are so completely apt in this statement is unknown.Just adding: I heard on CNN News ("that some would use 20 as the shorter way of saying it. Like twenty ten ect...").I Love ur mom

When does the decade end?

11:59:59.9 PM, December 31, 2009.=================================I don't agree.The first year was the year ' 1 ', not ' 0 '. That's why the end of the first Century (100 years)was the end of the year ' 100 ', and the end of the 20th Century was the end of ' 2000 '.By definition, a decade is 10 years. The first decade consisted of the years [ 1 - 10 ], and endedat the end of the year ' 10 '. Add 10 years to that for every subsequent decade, and eventuallyyou wind up in our current era. The ends of decades occur at 11:59:59.9 PM on December 31stof 1990, 2000, and 2010.If you accept the reasoning concerning the Century but not concerning the decade, then youwind up in an awkward position, with the year 2000 being in the old Century but the new decade.Wikipedia resolves this problem by only having "9" years in the first "decade".The new decade does not start until Jan. 1, 2011 , one second past midnight on Dec 31st, 2010.When you refer to the "60's" you are refering to the years 1960 to 1969, ten years... just not the same as the decade of the 60's.
