The environment score was calculated by taking into account the physical and emotional components of a working environment whilst the income score was calculated by adding the estimated mid-level income and the income growth potential. The outlook score was calculated by taking into account three occupational factors; employment growth, income growth potential and unemployment. The final category, stress, was calculated by taking into account 11 different job demands, including competitiveness, environmental conditions and meeting the public, and assigning them a range of points. The final score is then calculated by adding one third of the Income score, one third of the outlook score and a final third on the rankings in Environment/Physical Demands and Stress.
