Simcity graphs are all represented in months, but there doesn't seem to be ~30 days in a month. How many days are in a month?

A month is the same as a day. Therefore there are 12 days (months) in a year.

+1: For someone out of context, this answer is hilarious. – Omega Mar 21 '13 at 3:41
It might be hilarious but also confusing. I'm assuming a month in game is a real day of 24 hours in actual real clock time? – Otherside Mar 21 '13 at 7:45
These time units are not real time. – Chromium Mar 23 '13 at 12:57
I think this answer could be improved with a separation of units in "real time" vs. "game time". It's pretty confusing as is. – EBongo Mar 23 '13 at 13:42

There are 24 hours in a budget month. You can confirm this by looking at the budget window.

"Profit/Loss" * 24 + "Monthly Transactions" = Monthly Profit

Also, you can see the current month and year by hovering over the clock in the lower left corner.
