Global Divergence in the De-routinization of Jobs
Publication | May 2023
This study introduces a methodology to estimate the economy-specific task content of occupations across economies at different income levels.
The results show that occupations in low- and middle-income economies are more routine-intensive than in high-income economies and the gap continues to widen. Investment in skills, technology use, and participation in global value chains are key factors for work content and productivity to converge with those in high-income economies.
