  1. *Increment expressed as proportion of the goal; PI = (returns during stipulated period)/Goal. PIc is PI during the control period and PII is PI during the intervention period.
  2. +p tests the null hypothesis that the beta coefficient related to PII/PIc,, equals zero, and similarly tests that PII = PIc.
  3. §Approximate mean values used for covariates in the statistical model (reference #9).
