Data on the critical and distinctive skills necessary for those working in the Informatics field from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

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 Informatics 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, Critical Thinking, and Complex Problem Solving are the three most important skills for people in the field.
