Using similarly purposively set mean benchmark values, the item scores for the second part of the ADCQHSS section B (awareness of the negative effects of alcoholic drinks on Tables 2 and 3).
A database created from Microsoft Excel was used for data management, which involved compiling, organizing, defining, and managing data.
NME, BNA, HAN, CE, JIO, and BAE designed the study procedure.

Item scores were included as the dependent variables and sex as the independent variables.Using purposively determined mean benchmark values, the item scores for the first part of the ADCQHSS section B (the extent to which consumed alcoholic drinks) were interpreted as follows: Highly Consume (HC) = 3.50 to 4.00; Moderately Consume (MC) = 3.00 to 3.49; Rarely Consume (RC) = 2.50 to 2.99; and Does Not Consume (DNC) = 1.00 to 2.49.We conducted an a priori analysis to determine the study sample size based on the assumptions that a required sample size can be computed as a function of user-specified values for the required significance level researchers should endeavor to make use of statistical technique to determine sample size, and should be aware that the fewer a sample size is, the greater the possibility of sampling error.Thus, the assumptions underlying the use of a priori analysis for sample size calculations were considered appropriate for the current study.
