Maybe you want to add a segment variable (the upper quartile, lower quartile that people belong to) in a logistic model form /multiple regression model form specified to SAS PROC POWER for your power calculation.

Investigators then compare the cases and the controls to determine possible factors which can be linked to the outcome.
