Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 19. 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 June 2021.
All research outputs
#1,469,508
of 20,914,383 outputs
Outputs from BMC Public Health
#1,589
of 13,559 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#40,109
of 338,978 outputs
Outputs of similar age from BMC Public Health
#191
of 1,179 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 20,914,383 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done particularly well and is in the 92nd percentile: it's in the top 10% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 13,559 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 13.6. This one has done well, scoring higher than 88% 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 338,978 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 88% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 1,179 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done well, scoring higher than 83% of its contemporaries.
