Skills

Data on the critical and distinctive skills necessary for those working in the Cell Physiology field from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Cell Physiology majors need many skills, but most especially Reading Comprehension. The revealed comparative advantage (RCA) shows that Cell Physiology majors need more than the average amount of Repairing, Equipment Maintenance, Science, Troubleshooting, Mathematics, Management of Financial Resources, Management of Material Resources, Quality Control Analysis, Equipment Selection, Active Learning, Learning Strategies, Judgment and Decision Making, Service Orientation, Instructing, Systems Evaluation, Systems Analysis, Time Management, Monitoring, Reading Comprehension, Speaking, Writing, Negotiation, Complex Problem Solving, Active Listening, Critical Thinking, Operations Analysis, Social Perceptiveness, Persuasion, Operation Monitoring, Management of Personnel Resources, Coordination, Programming, Technology Design, Operation and Control, and Installation.

These two visualizations, one a radial chart and one a bar chart, show the same information, a rating of how necessary the following skills are for Cell Physiology majors. Toggle between "value" and "RCA" to see the absolute rating of that skill (value) and the revealed comparative advantage (RCA), or how much greater or lesser that skill's rating is than the average. The longer the bar or the closer the line comes to the circumference of the circle, the more important that skill is. The importance of Repairing is very distinctive for majors, but the Reading Comprehension, Speaking, Writing, Learning Strategies, Instructing, Active Learning, Active Listening, Science, Critical Thinking, Judgment and Decision Making, Monitoring, Complex Problem Solving, Time Management, Social Perceptiveness, Mathematics, Systems Analysis, Systems Evaluation, Service Orientation, Coordination, Persuasion, Negotiation, Management of Personnel Resources, Operations Analysis, Management of Material Resources, Management of Financial Resources, Quality Control Analysis, Operation Monitoring, Repairing, Troubleshooting, Equipment Maintenance, Programming, Technology Design, Equipment Selection, Operation and Control, and Installation are the three most important skills for people in the field.
