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 Family & Community Services 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 Operation and Control is very distinctive for majors, but the Active Listening, Reading Comprehension, Active Learning, Speaking, Learning Strategies, Writing, Coordination, Critical Thinking, Instructing, Service Orientation, Complex Problem Solving, Judgment and Decision Making, Social Perceptiveness, Systems Analysis, Systems Evaluation, Monitoring, Time Management, Persuasion, Negotiation, Mathematics, Management of Personnel Resources, Science, Management of Financial Resources, Operation and Control, Operations Analysis, Management of Material Resources, Operation Monitoring, Technology Design, Programming, Quality Control Analysis, Equipment Selection, Troubleshooting, Installation, Equipment Maintenance, and Repairing are the three most important skills for people in the field.
