Abstract
This study provides data on the prevalence of self reported hypertension among actively working, male, Kentucky farmers, aged 55 years and older surveyed in the Kentucky Farm Family Health and Hazard Surveillance Study. In addition, we examined self-reported hypertension prevalence of Kentucky farmers in association with other comorbid chronic health conditions and with selected behavioral and anthropometric risk factors. A two-stage cluster design was used, with a random sample of 998 male Kentucky farmers, aged 55 years and older, selected for a 3D-minute telephone interview (response rate = 71 %).
