  1. a1 in-person site was missing number of onsite staff
  2. b1 in-person, 2 online, and 2 control sites were missing mean age of children
  3. cPercent race/ethnicity was estimated as the midpoint of a range and therefore percents for each group do not add up to 100%. 8 in-person, 2 online, and 1 control site were missing race/ethnicity
