How to get the number of weeks in a year
To get the number of ISO weeks (i.e. the number of the last week) in a year, get the week number of 28 December in that year using the above logic, i.e.
SELECT WEEKOFYEAR(CONCAT(yearcol, '-12-28')) FROM ….
This is based on the fact that the last week of the year always includes 28 December.
