Automation Index

The automation index captures an occupation’s risk of being affected by automation using four measures:

  • % of time spent on high-risk work

  • % of time spent on low-risk work

  • Number of high-risk jobs in compatible occupations

  • Overall industry automation risk

The automation index is presented as a scale with a base of 100. An automation index greater than 100 indicates a higher-than-average risk of automation; an automation index less than 100 indicates a lower-than-average risk of automation.

For information on the methodology for the automation index, see this article.
