Variation in systolic and diastolic hypertension by age
Proportion with isolated systolic hypertension (SBP >140) Proportion with isolated diastolic hypertension (DBP >90) Proportion with both systolic and diastolic hypertension (SBP >140 and DBP > 90) Proportion with normal blood pressure (both SBP < 140 and DBP <90) Total
Age group <60 7.8% 4.7% 7.0% 80.5% 100%
60-69 20.7% 1.8% 8.1% 69.4% 100%
70-79 32.9% 0.7% 3.7% 62.8% 100%
80+ 39.8% 0.2% 4.2% 55.8% 100%

SBP = systolic blood pressure.

DBP = diastolic blood pressure.
