Bottom Line: We examined cross-sectional data on 500 000 adults recruited from 10 diverse localities across China during 2004-08.The main analyses excluded those reported taking any antihypertensive medication, and were adjusted for age, region and education.The overall mean [standard deviation (SD)] BMI was 23.6 (3.3) kg/m(2) and mean WC was 80.0 (9.5) cm.

dyv012-F6: Higher SBP per 10 kg/m2 of BMI by different personal characteristics. Conventions as in Figure 3.

Mentions: For continuous analyses (Figures 4–6, 7b), SBP was regressed on levels of each adiposity measure as a continuous variable using multiple linear regression, with adjustment for covariates as above and also, when appropriate, for HC (20 categories). Associations with ‘height-adjusted weight’ and with ‘height-adjusted fat mass’ were estimated by specifying body mass (weight) or fat mass as the (continuous) exposure variable, and adjusting for height (20 quantiles). Effect modification of continuous associations with BMI (Figure 6) was assessed by performing separate regressions within each level of the possible effect modifier. All analyses were carried out using SAS version 9.2, and R version 2.10.1 was used to graph results.
