the last day of the month is the same result, hence:

declare @date datetime
set @date = dateadd(day, 1- datepart(day, getdate()),getdate())
select datepart(day, dateadd(day, -1, dateadd(month, 1, @date))) as number_of_days_for_current_month

angelIII,

I can't seem to figure it out how to implement the last day of the month to a group by clause, can you assist?

I found the answer, the data I was comparing with had a formula error that's why i though somethings wrong with averaging.
