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