Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 70. 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 2020.
All research outputs
#390,970
of 18,458,577 outputs
Outputs from American Economic Journal: Applied Economics
#84
of 556 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#9,930
of 274,403 outputs
Outputs of similar age from American Economic Journal: Applied Economics
#3
of 11 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 18,458,577 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 556 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 46.6. This one has done well, scoring higher than 85% 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 274,403 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 11 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done well, scoring higher than 81% of its contemporaries.
