A glass ceiling in financial services?
Women in financial services make up 54 percent of the industry’s labor force, 16 percent of senior executives, and 19 percent of board directors—but there are no female CEOs in Fortune 500 finance companies.

College enrollment drops
College enrollment dropped in 2012 for the first time in six years, according to newly released U.S. Census figures. About 90 percent of the reduction was among students age 25 and older, suggesting that the economy has drawn more older students into the job market.

The tooth fairy's pay raise
The tooth fairy’s going rate is outstripping inflation by several orders of magnitude. Children this year are getting an average of $3.70 per lost tooth, a 23 percent increase from 2012 and a 42 percent increase from 2011. Child-care experts said parents are driving up the per-tooth cost because of competitiveness with other parents and guilt over long work hours.

The success of Greek yogurt
Greek yogurt now makes up about 37 percent of all yogurt on U.S. grocery store shelves, up from about 1 percent when the thicker variant burst onto the scene in 2007.

More pie for the top 10 percent
The top 10 percent of earners last year collected more than half of the nation’s total income, including market income and capital gains. That’s the highest proportion since the government began recording income data more than a century ago.
