Summary/Abstract: This research synthesizes existing studies and investigates the rate and extent of potential job displacement caused by workplace automation. Using and replicating data from CB Insights, Frey and Osborne (2013), The Heritage Foundation, McKinsey Global Institute, Statista, and U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, I performed analyses and made estimates regarding probability of computerization of different occupations, share of current work hours with potential for automation by 2030 in selected countries, immediate risk from automation, probability of job automation by age group, and percentage changes in labor productivity.
