US Hypertension Prevalence 2001 to 2009

$447.50 / year

This dataset provides hypertension data by county, race, and sex for adults over 30 years of age in the United States for 2001 and 2009.

Complexity

This dataset resulted from the study, “Prevalence, awareness, treatment, and control of hypertension in the United States Counties, 2001-2009,” examines awareness, treatment, and control of hypertension for every county. This study was conducted to determine hypertension prevalence and trends in hypertension treatment and control exist at the county-level.

Trends in prevalence, awareness, treatment, and control of hypertension in US counties using data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) in five two-year waves from 1999–2008 including 26,349 adults aged 30 years and older and from the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) from 1997–2009 including 1,283,722 adults aged 30 years and older were estimated.

Hypertension in this study defined as systolic blood pressure (SBP) of at least 140 mm Hg, self-reported use of antihypertensive treatment, or both. Hypertension control was defined as systolic blood pressure (SBP) less than 140 mm Hg. Results showed that the median prevalence of total hypertension in 2009 was estimated at 37.6% (range: 26.5 to 54.4%) in men and 40.1% (range: 28.5 to 57.9%) in women.

It was concluded from this study that while control of hypertension is on the rise, the prevalence of total hypertension continues to increase in the US. There is a need to decrease the prevalence of hypertension through treatment and control of hypertension.
