Mapping the Careers of the Future in theUnited Kingdom, France and Germany

Choosing a career is a complex decision with which many young people struggle. That's why Gallup has partnered with Amazon Future Engineer to create the Careers of the Future Index (CFI). The index provides young adults and their advisers with transparent, useful data about the economic prospects of careers in the United Kingdom, France and Germany.

The goal is to highlight careers that both pay well and are likely to be available to applicants -- now and in the future. The CFI combines the most recent career-level data on four key job attributes -- income, job growth, job vacancies per worker and capacity to withstand automation -- to convey the economic strengths and weaknesses of various career paths.

High CFI scores generally indicate greater pay, a large and growing level of job openings, and/or better prospects that the job will remain viable in the future amid technological change.
