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