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