Skills

Data on the critical and distinctive skills necessary for those working in the Special Education field from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Special Education majors need many skills, but most especially Learning Strategies. The revealed comparative advantage (RCA) shows that Special Education majors need more than the average amount of Service Orientation, Learning Strategies, and Social Perceptiveness.

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 Special Education 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 Service Orientation is very distinctive for majors, but the Learning Strategies, Active Listening, and Reading Comprehension are the three most important skills for people in the field.
