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