51% of Pakistanis have gotten their blood pressure checked. GILANI POLL/GALLUP PAKISTAN.


Islamabad, Jun 18, 2013

According to a Gilani Research Foundation Survey carried out by Gallup Pakistan, 51% of Pakistanis have gotten their blood pressure checked.

A nationally representative sample of men and women from across the four provinces was asked “Have you ever gotten your blood pressure checked from a doctor or nurse?” Responding to this, 51% said yes and 48% said no. However, 1% did not give a response.

Respondents who said yes were then asked “If yes, during the last one year, did the doctor tell you that you have high blood pressure?” Responding to this, 50% said yes and 48% said no. However, 2% did not give a response. A comparison between men and women showed that women are diagnosed more often with high blood pressure (58%) compared with men (43%). Comparing between age groups shows that elders (50 years or older) have gotten their blood pressure checked more (75%) when compared with middle aged respondents (30-50 year olds) (53%) and youth (under 30) (46%).
