In this McKinsey & Co report, it is highlighted that automation is slowly phasing out some jobs in the USA but their concentration varies and the US economy will inevitably continue to generate other jobs.
As intelligent machines and robotic process automation enter the workplace, some occupations will be lost and others shrinking. At the same time, the economy is generating new jobs - although they may be different occupations in different locations. What does the future of work hold for places and people ma cross the United States?
Job losses will occur nationwide. In 90 percent of US countries, the potential displacement rate is between 22 and 27 percent. But there are variations, ranging from 18 percent all the way to 33 percent in some hard-hit places.
The average displacement rate is highest across low-growth and rural segments, and lowest in the urban core cities.
