    Fulltext.

    Objectives

    This study was undertaken to examine how the interaction between occupational class transitions and race affects the incidence of hypertension.

    Methods

    A cohort of 1982 men (183 Black), ages 25 to 55, received a baseline medical exam between 1971 and 1975 and a follow-up between 1982 and 1984.

    Logistic regressions were estimated for hypertension at follow-up controlling for hypertension at baseline, other risk factors associated with blood pressure, and interaction terms identifying specific occupational class transitions among Blacks and Whites.
