  • Models were adjusted for age, race/ethnicity, annual household income and educational attainment.

  • High ADI represents high deprivation.

  • *For participants on antihypertensive medications, measured blood pressure was corrected by adding 15 mm Hg to SBP and 10 mm Hg to DBP.

  • †PP=SBP DBP; MAP=1/3(SBP) +2/3(DBP).

  • CI, confidence interval; DBP, diastolic blood pressure; MAP, mean arterial pressure; PP, pulse pressure; PR, prevalence ratio; SBP, systolic blood pressure.
