Abstract

Lived health is a person's level of functioning in his or her current environment and depends both on the person's environment and biological health. Our study addresses the question whether biological health or lived health is more predictive of self-reported general health (SRGH).

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 4. 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 23 February 2014.
All research outputs
#2,325,566
of 9,181,375 outputs
Outputs from BMC Public Health
#3,134
of 7,437 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#48,018
of 180,046 outputs
Outputs of similar age from BMC Public Health
#121
of 267 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 9,181,375 research outputs across all sources so far. This one has received more attention than most of these and is in the 74th percentile.
So far Altmetric has tracked 7,437 research outputs from this source. They typically receive more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 9.8. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 56% 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 180,046 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 72% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 267 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 54% of its contemporaries.
