Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 46. 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 30 December 2015.
All research outputs
#152,737
of 7,093,016 outputs
Outputs from Labour & Industry
#1
of 47 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#7,579
of 224,696 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Labour & Industry
#1
of 2 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 7,093,016 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done particularly well and is in the 97th percentile: it's in the top 5% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 47 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 4.7. This one scored the same or higher as 46 of them.
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 224,696 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 96% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 2 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
