Skills

Data on the critical and distinctive skills necessary for those working in the Modeling, Virtual Environments, & Simulation field from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Modeling, Virtual Environments, & Simulation majors need many skills, but most especially Programming. The revealed comparative advantage (RCA) shows that Modeling, Virtual Environments, & Simulation majors need more than the average amount of Installation, Programming, 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 Modeling, Virtual Environments, & Simulation 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 Programming, Systems Evaluation, and Systems Analysis are the three most important skills for people in the field.
