  1. SD = standard deviation; ICC = intraclass correlation; MPB = Model Practice Building.
  2. *Subsample from test-retest study (n = 92).
  3. **Response value ranged from 1 to 7.
  4. *** p < .05 for pairwise contrast with MPB grantee obesity programs as reference group in generalized linear model.
