For analytical statistics: Pearson Chi-Square will be used for categorical data and T-test for continuous data. General Linear Model (GLM) Repeated Measure to evaluate mean differences for the intervention group and control group. Also, multivariate analysis (MANCOVA) will be used to assess statistical differences on continuous dependent variables (KAPs) by an independent grouping variables while controlling for covariates.
