This dataset was created following data extraction of a systematic review of intervention studies reported within published articles and dissertations conducted through methods described in the paper "A meta-analysis of techniques to promote motivation for health behaviour change from a self-determination theory perspective". The aim of the systematic review and meta-analysis was to explore what behaviour change techniques are used in interventions targeting health behaviour change, and how they influence the theoretical mediators of behaviour change as set out by Self Determination Theory. The mediators analysed were; autonomy, competence and relatedness satisfaction, perceived autonomy support, and autonomous motivation. The dataset includes information on the design, aims, participants and context of each study, and primary data of mean and standard deviations of pre- and post-intervention target mediators where available. Effect sizes were computed from this information for meta-analysis. Where mean and standard deviations were not provided, effect sizes were estimated by converting available data (e.g., change scores, odds ratios, F statistics).
