A new study is shedding light on which careers and populations are most vulnerable to automation-induced job loss.
Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics and the University of Oxford’s study on “The Future of Employment,” we identified the 170 most at-risk occupations based on their probability of being replaced by machines, robots, and automation. From there, we determined how many potential jobs across America’s workforce and communities are in jeopardy.
