Skills

Data on the critical and distinctive skills necessary for those working in the Nuclear & Industrial Radiologic Technologies field from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Nuclear & Industrial Radiologic Technologies majors need many skills, but most especially Active Listening. The revealed comparative advantage (RCA) shows that Nuclear & Industrial Radiologic Technologies majors need more than the average amount of Repairing, Equipment Maintenance, and Operation and Control.

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 Nuclear & Industrial Radiologic Technologies 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 Repairing is very distinctive for majors, but the Active Listening, Monitoring, and Operation Monitoring are the three most important skills for people in the field.
