The future job prospects indicator compares future number of job openings in a particular occupation to total employment in that occupation. If the number of future job opportunities is high compared to total employment (for example for scores above 1 it means that there will be more job openings than number of current jobs in the occupations), we say that there will be high job prospects. On the contrary, if the score is for example 0.4 (only 4 new job openings for every 10 existing jobs), the job prospects will be relatively low.
