  1. Configurations of intervention components associated with reductions in meat consumption, purchase, or selection. The overall solution covers 58% of the 24 interventions included in QCA and associated with reductions in meat consumption, purchase, or selection in all comparisons in which these configurations were evaluated. Raw coverage refers to the percentage of interventions associated with reductions in meat consumption, purchase, or selection covered by an intervention configuration. Raw consistency refers to the percentage of interventions within a configuration being associated with the aforementioned outcomes
