The graphs show the breakdown of the Colleges of Commissioners since 1999, by age and gender, based on the situation at the beginning of each Commission’s term. Due to EU enlargement, the number of Commissioners has increased from 20 to 28 since 1999. While the proportion of women in the College has fluctuated during this period, it has increased from 25.0% in 1999 to 32.1% at the start of the Juncker Commission in 2014.
