Skills

Data on the critical and distinctive skills necessary for those working in the Chemical Technology field from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Chemical Technology majors need many skills, but most especially Operation Monitoring. The revealed comparative advantage (RCA) shows that Chemical Technology majors need more than the average amount of Equipment Maintenance, Repairing, 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 Chemical Technology 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 Equipment Maintenance is very distinctive for majors, but the Operation Monitoring, Monitoring, and Reading Comprehension are the three most important skills for people in the field.
