* A logistic model was used to predict the odds of a Blood Pressure of ≥ 140/90 mmHg (as compared with a Blood Pressure of < 140/90 mmHg). Each odds ratio was adjusted for all the other listed variables.

OR per increase of one mmHg.

OR per increase of 1 yr.

Used as continuos variable in the model.
