The problem of inequality takes center stage among the modern global issues, thus, primarily we consider the structure of the Millennium Development Goals and Germany’s efforts to achieve them. Evaluation of inequality in Germany is of key importance to understand whether the scale of the latter is beyond the boundaries which are acceptable in the modern society. Nowadays methodological approaches which are aimed at measuring inequalities within countries differ by a great variety, reflecting the diversity of public life. Therefore, in this paper much attention is paid to the consideration of the features of indicators that are important for reflecting the structure and scale of inequality. In this case we concentrate not only on indicators which are already used by many specialists, but also on those, the wide dissemination of which would contribute to the in-depth study of inequality while analyzing it. The current study presents a brief description of the picture of inequality in the 21st century in the countries of the European Union as a whole and is focused in particular on tracing relevant trends in Germany in retrospect.
