Skills

Data on the critical and distinctive skills necessary for those working in the Biological & Physical Sciences field from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Biological & Physical Sciences majors need many skills, but most especially Reading Comprehension. The revealed comparative advantage (RCA) shows that Biological & Physical Sciences majors need more than the average amount of Management of Financial Resources, Technology Design, and Science.

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 Biological & Physical 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 Management of Financial Resources is very distinctive for majors, but the Reading Comprehension, Active Listening, and Writing are the three most important skills for people in the field.
