To investigate trends in blood pressure and the prevalence and treatment of hypertension in the Netherlands between 1974 and 1986, data from two screening projects on cardiovascular risk factors were used.
Between 1974 and 1980 about 30,000 men and women aged 37-43 were screened.
Between 1981-1986 about 80,000 men aged 33-37 were examined.
An increase in average systolic blood pressure by 2 mmHg in men in the period 1974-1980 was followed by an insignificant change during the period 1981-1986.
Average diastolic blood pressure increased by 4 mmHg between 1974 and 1980 but decreased by the same amount between 1981 and 1986.
The prevalence of hypertension in 40-year-old men increased from 12.7% in 1974 to 17.8% in 1980.
