Age-adjusted percentage with BP <130/80mmHg for those with less than high school education changed little between 1988–1994 (41.1%) and 1999–2002 (38.7%), and then increased to 57.3% in 2003–2006. Although those with high school education displayed a similar trend, change between the time periods did not reach statistical significance.

Age-adjusted percentage with BP <130/80mmHg did not differ across education levels.
