For sample adults who had participated in soccer in the past 2 weeks (EXSOCCER), EXSOCCERMIN reports the average number of minutes respondents had spent playing soccer each time they had engaged in that activity over the past 2 weeks.

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