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 General Public Health 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 Operation and Control is very distinctive for majors, but the Speaking, Writing, Reading Comprehension, Active Listening, Learning Strategies, Critical Thinking, Active Learning, Instructing, Social Perceptiveness, Monitoring, Time Management, Judgment and Decision Making, Complex Problem Solving, Coordination, Service Orientation, Persuasion, Negotiation, Systems Analysis, Science, Systems Evaluation, Management of Personnel Resources, Operations Analysis, Mathematics, Management of Material Resources, Management of Financial Resources, Operation Monitoring, Quality Control Analysis, Technology Design, Operation and Control, Programming, Equipment Maintenance, Troubleshooting, Repairing, Equipment Selection, and Installation are the three most important skills for people in the field.
