Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 9. 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 05 July 2011.
All research outputs
#1,452,708
of 12,372,633 outputs
Outputs from BMC Public Health
#1,781
of 8,418 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#1,408,733
of 11,792,578 outputs
Outputs of similar age from BMC Public Health
#1,781
of 8,416 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,372,633 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done well and is in the 86th percentile: it's in the top 25% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 8,418 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 10.7. This one has done well, scoring higher than 78% 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 11,792,578 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 86% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 8,416 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done well, scoring higher than 78% of its contemporaries.
