Eastern European Economics, 2022, vol. 60, issue 5, 452-478

Abstract: The aim of this paper is to examine the impacts of automation on the Slovak labor market by applying automatability estimates to detailed employment data at the levels of districts and occupations. The district- and industry-level analysis shows that automation has the potential to significantly disrupt the Slovak labor market. Employees with lower incomes face greater risk of losing their jobs. The risk of automation is lower in districts with higher unemployment levels and vice versa, which indicates that technological progress does not have the potential to increase existing regional disparities in terms of employment opportunities. Policymakers should therefore consider differences among districts and industries when directing their job creation efforts.
