Data on the critical and distinctive skills necessary for those working in the Welding Technology field from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Welding Technology majors need many skills, but most especially Critical Thinking. The revealed comparative advantage (RCA) shows that Welding Technology majors need more than the average amount of Repairing, Equipment Maintenance, and Equipment Selection.

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 Welding 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 Repairing is very distinctive for majors, but the Critical Thinking, Operation Monitoring, and Monitoring are the three most important skills for people in the field.
