And the jobs most affected by AI are...

👨🏻‍💻 We know that AI is going to touch most every industry and job. And thanks to a new Pew Research study, we’re starting to understand which careers will be affected first.

Top-line findings

  • 19% of American workers were in jobs that are the most exposed to AI last year—the most important activities may be either replaced or assisted by AI
  • 23% of workers have jobs that are the least exposed to AI, in which the most important activities are farther from the reach of AI
  • Jobs with a high level of exposure to AI tend to be in higher-paying fields where a college education and analytical skills can be a plus

Groups that will be affected most

  • The highly educated: Workers with a bachelor’s degree or more (27%) are more than twice as likely as those with a high school diploma only (12%) to see the most exposure
  • Women: A greater share of women (21%) than men (17%) are likely to see the most exposure to AI. This is because of differences in the types of jobs held by men and women.
  • Asian and White: Asian (24%) and White (20%) workers are more exposed than Black (15%) and Hispanic (13%) workers.
  • Higher-wage workers: In 2022, workers in the most exposed jobs earned $33 per hour, on average, compared with $20 in jobs with the least amount of exposure.
