Statistical Analyses After subdividing the whole sample into five groups according to the stage of mammography adoption, a multivariate analysis of covariance (MANCOVA) was run with its corresponding post hoc tests for the study of the assessed sociocognitive variables, in order to analyze the existence of significant differences in these variables between the subgroups. Furthermore, and in order to analyze the specific beliefs associated with the stage of mammography adoption, we ran analyses of covariance (ANCOVAs) and the corresponding post hoc tests for the items of those variables in which this analysis could add qualitatively notable information beyond the one offered by the total score of the scale: ―benefits‖, ―barriers‖ and ―information‖.

In the contrasting tests between subgroups we used the Bonferroni test because it adjusts the observed significance level when you perform multiple comparisons. 3. 1. Differences between Stages in Sociocognitive Variables Before analyzing the existence of differences in the sociocognitive variables among the different stages of the mammography adoption, it was decided to check if there were any differences between the stages at sociodemographic variables.
