The aim of this paper is to propose a methodology for evaluating long-term income distributions according to the equality of opportunity principle; we propose partial and complete rankings of long term income distributions and show the relationship between the inequality of oppor- tunity in the single periods of time and inequality of opportunity in the long run. We show that this relationship can be interpreted in terms of intragenerational mobility. In general, it is possible to state that mobility can act as an equalizer of opportunities when the accounting period is extended.
