Abstract

To consider the application of the store-turnover method as a guide to assess food intake in remote Aboriginal communities. Food sources in a remote Aboriginal island community were documented. The contribution of quantifiable food sources to total community-level fresh fruit and vegetable availability was determined. The store remains the single largest supplier of fruit and vegetables overall (54%), however its contribution varies depending on the subpopulation of interest. A store-turnover alone may significantly underestimate community-level dietary intake, depending on the contribution of other food sources. Changes in the food supply in remote communities, coupled with methodological complexities inherent in the store-turnover method, challenge its application in a contemporary context. A simplified version of the store-turnover method is needed that could be widely applied by community people and health practitioners seeking to initiate and monitor interventions to improve diet quality.

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 17 May 2012.
All research outputs
#3,621,344
of 12,479,613 outputs
Outputs from Australian and New Zealand Journal of Public Health
#592
of 1,466 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#86,257
of 271,322 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Australian and New Zealand Journal of Public Health
#23
of 35 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,479,613 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 49th percentile – i.e., 49% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 1,466 research outputs from this source. They typically receive more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 9.2. This one is in the 20th percentile – i.e., 20% 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 271,322 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 65% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 35 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 25th percentile – i.e., 25% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
