BMJOPEN2014006046F3: Standardised mean differences immediately postintervention for studies focusing on physical activity change (ordered by effect size).

Mentions: Twelve physical activity interventions yielded an SMD of 0.21 (95% CI 0.06 to 0.36, I2=76%; figure 3). Three interventions provided longer term follow-up data 6–8 months postbaseline with a combined SMD of 0.17 (95% CI −0.02 to 0.37, I2=0%).
