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

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

As a follow-up, respondents were asked how much their heart rate or breathing had increased while skating (EXSKATEBR).


Apart from universe changes, EXSKATEMIN is fully comparable across all years.
