Public Perception on the Risk of Job Automation

User sentiment overview

The 'User sentiment overview' chart visualizes evolving views on job automation risks, showing both weighted and unweighted data. Points on the chart represent the monthly aggregated risk level, sourced from user votes and scaled from 0% to 100%, with 100% indicating maximum perceived risk.

The risk level is calculated in two ways. The unweighted average treats the votes from all occupations equally, meaning that the votes carry equal weight regardless of the size of the profession. On the other hand, the weighted average takes into account the size of each profession, with occupations having larger workforce carrying more weight in the average calculation.

Here in Germany, I don't know the exact numbers - I don't really go by them! What I notice in my surroundings is that many people are unemployed. When I myself look for jobs, I see very few offers. I would have had to have studied to see better prospects. But despite all this, the media reports that many jobs are being replaced by robots in the industry. When shopping, there are already many checkouts where there is no cashier and you use your credit card.
