  1. Rate ratios were adjusted for the main and interaction effects of Family Healthy Lifestyle and Family Recreation interventions, baseline service linkage rate, income group (income support versus other), and offset by the days of follow-up within each visit (≤28 days). Significant differences at P < 0.05 between intervention groups and the Self-Directed group are in bold
