Skills

Data on the critical and distinctive skills necessary for those working in the General Electrical Equipment Installation & Repair field from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. General Electrical Equipment Installation & Repair majors need many skills, but most especially Operation Monitoring. The revealed comparative advantage (RCA) shows that General Electrical Equipment Installation & Repair majors need more than the average amount of Installation, Repairing, and Equipment Maintenance.

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 Electrical Equipment Installation & Repair 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 Operation Monitoring, Monitoring, and Troubleshooting are the three most important skills for people in the field.
