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