For sample adults who had participated in jogging in the past 2 weeks (EXJOG), EXJOGMIN reports the average number of minutes respondents had spent doing jogging each time they had engaged in that activity over the past 2 weeks.

After determining that a respondent participated in jogging, respondents were first asked, "How many times in the past 2 weeks did you do go jogging?" (EXJOGNO). They were then asked, "On the average, about how many minutes did you spend jogging each time?" EXJOGMIN reports the answer to this last question.
