 3rd millennium - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The third millennium (so called because it is the third period of 1000 years in the Common Era) is a period of time which began on 1 January 2001 and will end on 31 December 3000.
As the millennium currently in progress, only its first decade, the 2000s, can be the subject of the historian's attention, the remaining part of the 21st century (such as the predicted stagnation of world population at some 10 billion in the 2050s) and longer-term trends being the province of futures studies.
Millennialists predict the third millennium will be the millennium of peace, when mankind finally learns to live in harmony with each other and nature.

Starting from ground zero, the first year of the millennium was completed on December 31, Year Zero, or, in other words, on January 1, Year 1, exactly one year had been completed.
Following this logic, the first century was complete as of January 1, A.D. 100, the first millennium as of January 1, A.D. 1000, and the second millennium as of January 1, 2000.
Thus, by most accounts the second millennium from the birth of Christ was, in all cases, concluded by December 31st, 1997.
