Incidence and trends in incidence of definite hypertension were analyzed based on 30 years follow-up of 5,209 subjects in the Framingham Heart Study cohort. Based on pooling of 15 two-year periods, hypertension incidence per biennium increased with age in men from 3.3 per cent at ages 30-39 to 6.2 per cent at ages 70-79, and in women from 1.5 per cent at ages 30-39 to 8.6 per cent at ages 70-79. No consistent trend in incidence rates was evident for either sex from the 1950s through the 1970s… 

Prevalence and incidence of hypertension in a population cohort of people aged 65 years or older in Spain

Both the incidence and prevalence of hypertension in this population of people aged at least 65 years were high, and the prevalence increased dramatically over time, especially among women, as well as in all age groups.

High incidence of hypertension in middle-aged French adults in the late 1990s

In a cohort of 4059 healthy volunteers enrolled throughout the French metropolitan territory and followed between 1996 and 2001, the incidence of hypertension during follow-up was unexpectedly high compared to the figures observed in randomly selected individuals from other Caucasian populations.

Prevalence and Incidence of Hypertension in the General Adult Population

The decrease of BP over time seems to be caused by improved hypertension control due to interventional effects of the authors' observational study and improved health care, and an increase in anti-hypertensive medication consumption and a higher awareness of the condition.

Seven-year incidence of hypertension in a cohort of middle-aged African Americans and whites.

It is indicated that middle-aged African Americans and whites have a similar risk of developing hypertension given the same age, initial blood pressure, and body mass index at baseline.

Sex-Specific Incidence Rates and Risk Factors for Hypertension During 13 Years of Follow-up: The Tehran Lipid and Glucose Study

In the Tehranian population, nearly 2.7% of total participants (3% of men and 2.6% of women) develop hypertension each year, and obesity and high BP levels are the main modifiable risk factors in both sexes.

Incidence of hypertension in a prospective cohort study of adults from Porto, Portugal

In this urban Portuguese population the incidence rate of hypertension was high, with new cases occurring predominantly among older subjects, the less educated and those with overweight-obesity.

Race and sex differentials in the impact of hypertension in the United States. The National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey I Epidemiologic Follow-up Study.

Investigation of changes in blood pressure and frequency of treatment, hypertension incidence, and ten-year survival of the cohort relative to hypertension status at baseline found minimal differences in the incidence of hypertension between men and women for all age groups.

One-year hypertension incidence and its predictors in a working population: the IHPAF study

Age and body mass index at baseline were the two major independent determinants of incident hypertension in both genders and alcohol consumption in men were the main modifiable predictors of hypertension.

Epidemiology and the Prevention of Hypertension

To achieve the final goal of eliminating all blood pressure-related disease in the community, detection and treatment of hypertension must be complemented by equally energetic approaches directed at primary prevention of hypertension.



Factors affecting the incidence of hypertension.

  • 1987
The incidence of hypertension was determined among 10,173 patients of general practices in southwestern Ontario studied from 1978 to 1982 and the incidence was higher among men than among women until age 50, after which it was similar for the two sexes.

[Incidence of arterial hypertension in the Quebec region].

Baseline blood pressure and overweight are strong determinants of a future HBP and can be used to identify the high risk subgroup and the incidence of HBP is 169 per 1000 in 5 years.

Progress in the battle against hypertension. Changes in blood pressure levels in the United States from 1960 to 1980.

Analysis of age-adjusted data for adults aged 18 to 74 years (including those on antihypertensive medication) indicates that between the first and third surveys for whites and blacks, respectively, mean systolic blood pressure declined 5 and 10 mm Hg, and changes in diastolic blood pressures were generally not significant among race-sex groups.

Declining cardiovascular mortality.

Improvement in cardiovascular mortality is the main reason that total mortality has declined 26% since 1963 and that average life expectancy at age 35 increased 2.6 years during the 10 years from 1972 to 1982, a greater increase than during any decade since vital statistics were first published in 1900.

Physical activity and incidence of hypertension in college alumni.

Varying levels of vigorous exercise are associated with lower hypertension incidence, and, without necessarily altering body weight-for-height, avoids or reduces fat and promotes muscle; obesity, rather than excess weight- for- height, is associated with higher hypertension incidence; hence, vigorous exercise is appropriate for use as an intervention regimen in the prevention of hypertension.

The biphasic action of cardiac glycosides on the Na+, K+-pump and its relevance in the treatment of heart failure.

Of the factors studied, systolic and diastolic blood pressure ranked highest among discriminant factors in both sexes and at all ages, and the ponderal index followed at most ages whereas among women it was either the Ponderal index or plasma urate that were next in order depending upon age.
