Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 3. 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 12 August 2012.
All research outputs
#815,928
of 3,634,915 outputs
Outputs from Australia and New Zealand Health Policy
#7
of 23 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#24,767
of 95,046 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Australia and New Zealand Health Policy
#1
of 1 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 3,634,915 research outputs across all sources so far. This one has received more attention than most of these and is in the 63rd percentile.
So far Altmetric has tracked 23 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 4.7. This one scored the same or higher as 16 of them.
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 95,046 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 1 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than all of them
