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 22 September 2021.
All research outputs
#1,007,082
of 22,506,412 outputs
Outputs from American Economic Journal: Economic Policy
#174
of 666 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#21,707
of 317,886 outputs
Outputs of similar age from American Economic Journal: Economic Policy
#1
of 10 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 22,506,412 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done particularly well and is in the 95th percentile: it's in the top 5% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 666 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 41.1. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 74% 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 317,886 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 93% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 10 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
