The left-hand graph shows the number of women and men per two-year age group among the Commission’s staff. Women aged 37 and 38 constitute the largest age group overall, at 1 001. Men aged 53 and 54 are the most numerous among their gender, at 906. Persons aged 47 and 48 constitute the largest age group overall.
Singling out those age groups with a minimum of 100 persons (between 31 and 64 years of age), the gender distribution is noticeably skewed. While the ratio of women is highest aged 31 and 32, at 67%, their share in staff steadily decreases – and almost reverses in the age group of 63 and 64, at 35% – with increasing age.
