Abstract

Although the benefits of physical activity have been well-established, a significant number of children and adolescents in the U.S. do not meet the recommended levels of daily physical activity. Parental influences such as parents' physical activity participation may play an important role in affecting youths' physical activity.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 12. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 16 June 2014.
All research outputs
#2,447,348
of 21,353,728 outputs
Outputs from BMC Public Health
#2,828
of 13,851 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#25,363
of 209,205 outputs
Outputs of similar age from BMC Public Health
#204
of 1,076 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 21,353,728 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done well and is in the 88th percentile: it's in the top 25% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 13,851 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 13.7. This one has done well, scoring higher than 79% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 209,205 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has done well, scoring higher than 87% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 1,076 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done well, scoring higher than 81% of its contemporaries.
