It turns out, if you want to be happy in your career, you should study maths.

US jobs website CareerCast has released its annual Jobs Rated report, which analyses and ranks 200 professions from best to worst.

Four of the top 10 jobs in the list, which ranks professions based on a combination of income, work environment, stress and hiring outlook, focused on mathematics.

The number one job? An actuary — someone who uses mathematics, statistics and financial theory to assess the risk that an event will occur. Mathematician came in at number there, statistician was fourth, followed by data scientist at number six.

"Jobs in mathematics rank among the nation's best because they are financially lucrative, offer abundant opportunities for advancement and provide the opportunity to do great work in a supportive environment," CareerCast.com publisher Tony Lee said.

IT and healthcare jobs also did well, with high salaries and positive growth outlook for audiologists, biomedical engineers, dental hygienists, software engineers, occupational therapists and computer systems analysts.

The worst job? Newspaper reporter, which beat out lumberjack for the bottom position on this year's list due to its "negative growth outlook" and average annual salary of just $US36,267.

Other media jobs, including broadcaster and photojournalist, also ranked right down the bottom of the list. CareerCast.com noted, however, that those with good writing skills can often find new employment in public relations, marketing, advertising and social media, where the outlook may be brighter.

Taxi driver, soldier and firefighter also ranked among the worst jobs. "Although you might not be suited for the rigours of firefighting, serving in the military or working in the logging industry, some thrive in these dangerous and risky careers," Mr Lee said.

Thanks to declining letter volumes and cost-cutting measures, postman dropped into the 10 worst jobs for the first time this year with a growth outlook of -28.32.

The methodology for the rankings, which have been running for 20 years, includes a large number of variables. Environment — one of the four key criteria — takes into account both physical factors such as necessary energy, and emotional ones such as competitiveness.
