  1. Bolded figures indicate statistically significant variables at p ≤ 0.05 at multivariate analysis. Our final model was checked using Hosmer-Lemeshow goodness-of-fit test to see whether it fit perfectly well. The p-value of 0.99 from the Hosmer-Lemeshow’s goodness-of-fit test is an indicator that our model fitted the data well
