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 08 December 2021.
All research outputs
#6,459,343
of 19,907,236 outputs
Outputs from BMC Public Health
#6,908
of 12,993 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#155,819
of 403,533 outputs
Outputs of similar age from BMC Public Health
#4
of 4 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 19,907,236 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 45th percentile – i.e., 45% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 12,993 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 13.5. This one is in the 41st percentile – i.e., 41% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
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 403,533 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 59% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 4 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one.
