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