History of hypertension is based on self-report. For any given cycle, this variable indicates reported hypertension in past history or in at least one follow-up cycle up to and including that cycle. Participants are asked to respond “yes”, “suspect or possible”, or “no” to the following question:
Since your interview on [date of last interview], have you been told by a doctor, nurse, or therapist that you had high blood pressure?
|0||No history of hypertension|
|1||History of hypertension - Reported prior to or in the given cycle|
Notes: At baseline interview, the question reads: Have you ever been told by a doctor, nurse, or therapist that you had high blood pressure?
The provided references describe the baseline version of this variable.
