Abstract
The blood pressure level and several selected variables were studied in 485 female adolescents (15 to 18 years of age) for the purpose of knowing the distribution of blood pressure and the factors associated with blood pressure. The level of systolic and diastolic blood pressure did not change with the increase of the age, height and pulse rate. But the level of systolic and diastolic blood pressure elevated with the increase in body weight and variable weight-height ratios. The level of systolic and diastolic blood pressure was not associated with the family history of hypertension and blood type. So this data suggests that for Korean female adolescents, body weight and variable weight-height ratios correlate with blood pressure significantly.
