ABSTRACT. Research evidence suggests that automation and the creation of innovative tasks shape inequality, generating labor-displacing technological change and worldwide economic insecurity. Using and replicating data from Frey and Osborne (2013), McKinsey Global Institute, OECD PIAAC, Pew Research Center, PwC, Statista, U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, we performed analyses and made estimates regarding percentage of workers in each group who say that in 50 years robots and computers will do much of the work currently done by humans, percentage within each group who think their current jobs will definitely/probably exist in 50 years, probability of job automation by education, potential jobs at high risk of automation, and percentage of existing jobs at potential risk of automation.
