The following seven components are given equal weighting when calculating the overall score for each market. Each component measures how much pressure different factors are exerting on the local labour market. Higher scores mean that country is experiencing more pressure than has historically been the case. Lower scores mean that country is experiencing less pressure than has historically been the case.
