He spends, she spends!

When it comes to gender and money, there's no shortage of stats on how the sexes stack up.

From nest eggs to spending splurges, we've rounded up fresh stats and factoids that shed light on how men and women really compare on fundamental financial issues.

Check out the chart below to see how your team measures up.
