Skills

Data on the critical and distinctive skills necessary for those working in the Applied Sciences field from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Applied Sciences majors need many skills, but most especially N/A. The revealed comparative advantage (RCA) shows that Applied Sciences majors need more than the average amount of N/A, N/A, and N/A.

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 Applied Sciences 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 N/A is very distinctive for majors, but the N/A, N/A, and N/A are the three most important skills for people in the field.
