The blood pressure investigation was carried out on 530 males and 745 females of the general population including ages from 10 to 80 years. The increase of blood pressure with advancing age was evident both in males and females. The mean systolic pressures were greater in males upto 40 to 49 years and thereafter females showed greater mean values. However, diastolic pressure values were greater in males although. This is in agreement with the studies from India. Sex difference was evident in younger ages only.
