predictive-analysisSkills

Data on the critical and distinctive skills necessary for those working in the Project Management field from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Project Management majors need many skills, but most especially Reading Comprehension. The revealed comparative advantage (RCA) shows that Project Management majors need more than the average amount of Operation and Control, Management of Financial Resources, and Operation Monitoring.

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 Project Management 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 Reading Comprehension, Speaking, and Writing are the three most important skills for people in the field.
