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