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