Skills

Data on the critical and distinctive skills necessary for those working in the Word Processing field from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Word Processing majors need many skills, but most especially Reading Comprehension. The revealed comparative advantage (RCA) shows that Word Processing majors need more than the average amount of Equipment Maintenance, Operation and Control, and Mathematics.

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 Word Processing 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 Equipment Maintenance is very distinctive for majors, but the Reading Comprehension, Active Listening, and Speaking are the three most important skills for people in the field.
