Table 2 Aspects included in the economic assessment component of the ISA-Physical Activity and Environment in Sao Paulo city, Brazil

From: Study protocol: health survey of Sao Paulo: ISA-Physical Activity and Environment

Components Outcomes
Leisure-time physical activity Changes in walking duration (minutes) Walkt1 – Walkt0
\( \frac{t_{wl}^{t1}-{t}_{wl}^{t0}}{t_{wl}^{t0}}\times 100 \)
Changes in moderate-to-vigorous physical activity duration (minutes) Mod-Vigt1 – Mod-Vigt0
\( \frac{t_{mv}^{t1}-{t}_{mv}^{t0}}{t_{mv}^{t0}}\times 100 \)
Active travel Changes in walking duration (minutes) Walkt1 - Walkt0
\( \frac{t_{wt}^{t1}-{t}_{wt}^{t0}}{t_{wt}^{t0}}\times 100 \)
Changes in bicycling duration (minutes) Bicyclt1 – Bicyclt0
\( \frac{t_{bt}^{t1}-{t}_{bt}^{t0}}{t_{bt}^{t0}}\times 100 \)
Nutritional status Change in Body Mass Index (BMI, in kg/m2) BMIt1 – BMIt0
\( \frac{BMI^{t1}-{BMI}^{t0}}{BMI^{t0}}\times 100 \)
