Abstracts
The aim of this study was to explore how the association of 5-year cumulative incidence of arterial hypertension (further 5-CIAH) and education varies according to body weight, age and sex. The study was conducted on cohort of 1383 subjects aged 18+ with initially normal blood pressure (systolic <140 mmHg and diastolic <90 mmHg, and not taking medication). Data were collected in 2003 and repeated in 2008. Methods of descriptive statistics, c2 test and logistic regression were used. No association between education level and hypertension development was recorded in the group of
men and in the group of woman aged 65+. In the group of women with normal body weight, younger than 65 years, significantly higher 5-CIAH values were recorded in those with less than 12 years of education (32.5% [22.0 to 42.9]) compared to those with 12 or more years of education (9.6% [6.1 to 13.1]).
