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.
