Does 1600s mean 16th century?

No. The 1600s is a decade (in fact 1601-1610), and is the first decade of the 17th century.The 16th century is the years 1501-1600. This is because there is no year 0 in the common calendar, so the first century begins in the year 1 AD/CE. Add 1500 and fifteen respectively, and the 16th century starts in 1501. That's how to remember it.Sometimes historians (especially in economic history) speak of a "long sixteenth century" spanning c.1470-1620 (or c.1470-1640),a period distinguished by growing population, rising prices, economic resurgence and the strengthening of national monarchies in Europe and coming between the late medieval crisis (1315-1470) and the "seventeenth-century crisis" (1620/40-1740).
