UK Occupation Estimates: Exposure to Generic Disease and Physical Proximity

An estimate of exposure to disease (generally) and physical proximity for UK occupations based on US analysis of these factors, using 2019 data

Details

While working practices and conditions may be slightly different in the US for similar occupations, these estimates offer valuable insight into occupations that involve working in close proximity with others and those that are regularly exposed to diseases. This is a useful indication of which roles may be more likely to come into contact with people with COVID-19, based on what these roles normally entail.

Visualizations

Plot generic disease exposure risk versus physical proximity :

In[2]:=
BubbleChart[
 Tooltip[{#1, #2, #3}, #4] & @@@ Select[{#ProximityToOthers, #ExposureToDisease, #TotalInEmployment, \
#OccupationTitle} & /@ ResourceData[
ResourceObject[
     "UK Occupation Estimates: Exposure to Generic Disease and \
Physical Proximity"]], FreeQ[#, _Missing] &], ChartElementFunction -> "NoiseBubble", FrameLabel -> {"physical proximity", "exposure risk"}]
Out[2]=

Plot generic disease exposure risk versus median hourly pay :

In[3]:=
BubbleChart[
 Tooltip[{#1, #2, #3}, #4] & @@@ Select[{#MedianHourlyPay, #ExposureToDisease, #TotalInEmployment, \
#OccupationTitle} & /@ ResourceData[
ResourceObject[

Physical Proximity"]], FreeQ[#, _Missing] &], ChartElementFunction -> "NoiseBubble", FrameLabel -> {"median hourly pay", "exposure risk"}]
Out[3]=
