Data on the critical and distinctive skills necessary for those working in the Forestry field from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Forestry majors need many skills, but most especially Speaking. The revealed comparative advantage (RCA) shows that Forestry majors need more than the average amount of Operation and Control, Science, and Management of Material Resources.
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 Forestry 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 Speaking, Reading Comprehension, and Critical Thinking are the three most important skills for people in the field.
