Skills

Data on the critical and distinctive skills necessary for those working in the General Data Entry & Microcomputer Applications field from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. General Data Entry & Microcomputer Applications majors need many skills, but most especially Reading Comprehension. The revealed comparative advantage (RCA) shows that General Data Entry & Microcomputer Applications majors need more than the average amount of Programming, Equipment Selection, and Reading Comprehension.

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 General Data Entry & Microcomputer Applications 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 Programming is very distinctive for majors, but the Reading Comprehension, Active Listening, and Speaking are the three most important skills for people in the field.
