Tolkien estimated that his reign lasted approximately a century:

I have written nothing beyond the first few years of the Fourth Age. (Except the beginning of a tale supposed to refer to the end of the reign of Eldarion about 100 years after the death of Aragorn....)

The Letters of J. R. R. Tolkien, Edited by Humphrey Carpenter, Letter 338 to Fr. Douglas Carter, 6 June 1972

The date is an estimate, formed by adding 100 years to the date of Eldarion's accession to the throne.
