In this tutorial, you will learn **How to Sum by Year in Google Sheets**

- To Sum by Year in Google Sheets, you can first extract the year using the Year() function from your dataset then from the result identify the unique Year.

- Once the Unique Years are identified. You can use the SUMIF function to get the SUM by Year in Google Sheets.

**How to Sum by Year in Google Sheets: Step by Step Guide**

**Enclosed are the steps on How to Sum by Year in Google Sheets **:

**Step 1: Prepare your dataset**

Below is the dataset which we will use to Sum by Year in Google Sheets.

The following dataset consists of Dates and Visa Applications on that day

**Step 2**:** Use the YEAR() function to extract Year from dates**

Now we will use the Year() function to extract the Years from the available dates in our data set.

Below is the formula which we will use in our example. We will type **=Year(A2) **in the cell **D2**

=Year(A2)

To get the result on the rest of the cells in Column D . Move the cursor on top of the blue pointer in Cell D2 until it turns into a plus sign and starts dragging it downwards to apply the formula to the rest of the cells.

**Step 3: Identify the Unique Year**

Now we will identify the Uniques Year from the previous result using the **=UNIQUE()** function

We will type the formula** =UNIQUE(D2:D11) **in Cell E2 in our example

=UNIQUE(D2:D11)

Once we press enter we get a list of Unique Year.

**Step 4: Use the SUMIF function to find the Sum by Year**

Now to find the Sum by Year we will use the **SUMIF(range, criterion, sum_range)** function to calculate the sum of visa applications in each year.

We will type the below formula in Cell F2 in our example

In our example, we’ll type the following formula in cell **F2**:

=SUMIF($D$2:$D$11, E2, $B$2:$B$11)

Apply the formula downwards to the rest of the cells. Now we have the total number of applications as shown below

The above result means :

- The total number of Visa applications in the year 2019 was 28
- The total number of Visa applications in the year 2020 was 45
- The total number of Visa applications in the year 2021 was 27
- The total number of Visa applications in the year 2022 was 159
