The issue of equal opportunities is a priority for the EU in order to achieve the objectives of social cohesion at community level. The study aims to analyse the evolution of gender and age gaps between EU Member States over the period 2006-2014. Using the methods specific to descriptive statistics, cluster analysis and econometrics, it was concluded that gender and age disparities do exist in the EU, but they decreased over time, confirming a convergence process.
