Data on the critical and distinctive skills necessary for those working in the Critical Infrastructure Protection field from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Critical Infrastructure Protection majors need many skills, but most especially Reading Comprehension. The revealed comparative advantage (RCA) shows that Critical Infrastructure Protection majors need more than the average amount of Operation and Control, Management of Financial Resources, Operation Monitoring, Quality Control Analysis, Systems Analysis, Persuasion, Management of Material Resources, Coordination, Management of Personnel Resources, Systems Evaluation, Negotiation, Technology Design, Monitoring, Service Orientation, Social Perceptiveness, Troubleshooting, Judgment and Decision Making, Time Management, Critical Thinking, Programming, Operations Analysis, Complex Problem Solving, Active Listening, Active Learning, Writing, Reading Comprehension, Mathematics, Speaking, Instructing, Learning Strategies, Science, Equipment Selection, Installation, Equipment Maintenance, and Repairing.
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 Critical Infrastructure Protection 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 Operation and Control is very distinctive for majors, but the Reading Comprehension, Monitoring, Critical Thinking, Speaking, Active Listening, Writing, Judgment and Decision Making, Coordination, Active Learning, Systems Analysis, Social Perceptiveness, Complex Problem Solving, Instructing, Systems Evaluation, Persuasion, Time Management, Management of Personnel Resources, Learning Strategies, Negotiation, Service Orientation, Mathematics, Operations Analysis, Management of Financial Resources, Management of Material Resources, Operation Monitoring, Quality Control Analysis, Technology Design, Science, Programming, Operation and Control, Troubleshooting, Equipment Selection, Installation, Equipment Maintenance, and Repairing are the three most important skills for people in the field.
