Changes in the prevalence distribution of hypertension: Connecticut adults 1978-79 to 1982.


In the Spring and Summer of 1982 the Second Connecticut Blood Pressure Survey (CBPS-II) was completed. This survey is independent of, but essentially identical in design and implementation to the First Connecticut Blood Pressure Survey reported on by Freeman et al. [1]. This paper compares the results of the two surveys using the same analytic techniques as reported previously [2]. In addition, a model for analyzing the components of hypertension control is utilized in the analysis. Finally, the implications of the survey comparison are discussed in the context of the Connecticut High Blood Pressure Program (CHBP) [3].
