Skills

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