ABSTRACT. I draw on a substantial body of theoretical and empirical research on advanced automation technology, labor market insecurity, and collective joblessness, and using and replicating data from OECD/PIAAC, Pew Research Center, PwC, and The Economist, I performed analyses and made estimates regarding percentage who says automation will lead to new, better-paying jobs, jobs that will likely be eliminated by robots in the future, automation risk by job type (%), automation risk (50% or higher) and GDP per person (selected countries), and percentage of existing jobs at potential risk of automation.
