Seven percent of American adults think it is very likely that their own job or profession will be eliminated by automation during their lifetime. According to the Pew Research Center, another 23 percent say it is somewhat likely.[1]

Seventy percent say it’s not very or not at all (30 percent) likely.

Most, however, think it’s at least somewhat likely that fast food workers, insurance processors, and software engineers will be replaced by automation.

Pew also reports that six percent believe they have already been impacted by technology through job loss or reduced hours/pay.
