Abstract

Hypertension is more common in poor countries than in developed countries. The purpose of this study was to analyze the determinant of hypertension among Female Batik Wokers (FBW). From July to November 2019, a cross-sectional study was conducted in Kulonprogo, Yogyakarta. Structured questionnaires were used to collect sociodemographic information, while anthropometric variables and blood pressure were evaluated. Logistic regression models were used to examine the hypertension risk factor. FBW who had a secondary education level were 0.236 times more likely to be hypertensive than those who had no or primary level of education (p=0.005). FBW who had waist circumference (WC) >80 cm were 3.799 times more likely to be hypertensive than participants who had WC ≤80 cm (p=0.004).
