Abstract

Chronic conditions such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease and heart disease represent a serious and escalating health burden for Indigenous populations across Australia. Social disadvantage, inactive lifestyle and poor nutrition are major contributors to chronic disease among Indigenous peoples. We have the knowledge base to reduce the devastating impact of early onset chronic diseases in those who already have the conditions, and to prevent or delay their onset in those who have not yet succumbed. This represents a major and urgent challenge to governments and Indigenous communities.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 67. 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 14 September 2018.
All research outputs
#225,807
of 12,639,455 outputs
Outputs from Heart, Lung & Circulation
#3
of 752 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#5,011
of 229,873 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Heart, Lung & Circulation
#1
of 23 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,639,455 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done particularly well and is in the 98th percentile: it's in the top 5% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 752 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 3.2. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 99% 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 229,873 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 97% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 23 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 95% of its contemporaries.
