First Published: April, 2006

Access Constraints: None

Subject:Blood Pressure
Record Source: NHANES 2003 - 2004
Survey Methodology: NHANES 2003 - 2004 is a stratified multistage probability sample of the civilian non-institutionalized population of the U.S.
Medium: NHANES Web site; SAS transport files

Component Description

The Blood Pressure/Cholesterol section (prefix BPQ) provides personal interview data on awareness, treatment, and control of high blood pressure and high cholesterol. Questions are asked about lifestyle changes made to treat and/or prevent these conditions.

Eligible Sample

All participants 16 year of age and older are asked about high blood pressure.

All participants 20 year of age and older are asked about high cholesterol.

Interview Setting and Mode of Administration

A trained household interviewer administrated these questions to the survey participant during the household interview. The information was recorded using a computer-assisted personal interview (CAPI) system.

Analytic Notes

In 2002, the following derived variables were created by combining data collected using questions with slightly different wording:

BPD110A = BPQ110A + BPQ111A
BPD110B = BPQ110B + BPQ111B
BPD110C = BPQ110C + BPQ111C
BPD120 = BPQ120 + BPQ121
BPD130 = BPQ130 + BPQ131
BPD140 = BPQ140 + BPQ141

To clarify this set of questions for respondents, the text was rephrased in 2002 as “we are now going to ask if {you have/SP has} made any major changes on {your/his/her} own...” In 2001, the questions read “[have you/has s/he} made any major changes on {your/his/her} own…”

In 2003-2004, only the revised wording from 2002 was used. There was no need to combine data into a derived variable. However, in order to stay consistent with the previous data release naming conventions, the derived variable names were maintained as follows:

BPD110A = BPQ111A
BPD110B = BPQ111B
BPD110C = BPQ111C
BPD120 = BPQ121
BPD130 = BPQ131
BPD140 = BPQ141

Please refer to the Analytic Guidelines for further details on the use of sample weights and other analytic issues at http://www.cdc.gov/nchs/data/nhanes/nhanes_general_guidelines.pdf

The BPQ data are publicly available at www.cdc.gov/nchs/nhanes.htm.
