A cross-sectional survey was performed on home blood pressure recordings (home BP) in a rural community in northern Japan.
In total, 1190 participants (495 men and 695 women which consist 61.5% of the >=15 year-old regional population, n=1933) were asked to measure home BP every morning for a month, using a semiautomatic BP measuring device.
The actual measurements were done 16.8 +- 10.2 times (mean +- SD) for men and 19.0 +- 9.4 times for women.
