Scottish Labour

Date lodged: 3 November 2016

To ask the Scottish Government what analysis it has carried out of (a) how many and (b) what percentage of jobs are susceptible to be lost to automation or computerisation, broken down by (i) type of job and (ii) sector.

Answered by: Keith Brown 15 November 2016

There is no analysis undertaken as the data is not gathered or held centrally. As digital transformation plans are developed, a full assessment of the impact at all levels including equality, business and people, will be undertaken.
