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 Apparel & Textile Manufacture 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 Quality Control Analysis is very distinctive for majors, but the Speaking, Reading Comprehension, Active Listening, Learning Strategies, Instructing, Critical Thinking, Writing, Active Learning, Monitoring, Judgment and Decision Making, Social Perceptiveness, Complex Problem Solving, Systems Evaluation, Systems Analysis, Time Management, Coordination, Service Orientation, Persuasion, Mathematics, Management of Personnel Resources, Negotiation, Operations Analysis, Science, Management of Material Resources, Quality Control Analysis, Management of Financial Resources, Technology Design, Programming, Operation Monitoring, Troubleshooting, Equipment Selection, Installation, Operation and Control, Equipment Maintenance, and Repairing are the three most important skills for people in the field.
