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 03 May 2020.
All research outputs
#1,845,473
of 17,614,750 outputs
Outputs from BMC Public Health
#2,152
of 11,881 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#37,120
of 289,686 outputs
Outputs of similar age from BMC Public Health
#199
of 1,128 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 17,614,750 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done well and is in the 89th percentile: it's in the top 25% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 11,881 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 12.5. This one has done well, scoring higher than 81% 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 289,686 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 1,128 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done well, scoring higher than 82% of its contemporaries.
