  1. aTotal minutes of activity were calculated using linear interpolation of mean minutes at baseline to six-month follow-up, and from six-month follow-up to 12-month follow-up. Costs per minute increase in PA are based on mean PA increases and aggregate costs for each condition. Incremental costs represent the additional cost per minute of activity for Intervention participants beyond those reported by the control group
