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