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