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