ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study was to compare the blood pressure between urban and rural school going boys of Punjab. A sample of fifty school going boys (Urban: N1= 50; the mean age is 14.9 ± 0.84 years; the mean height is 149.21± 1.01cm; the mean weight is 47.91±2.03 kg and mean BMI is 21.42 ± 0.99. and Rural:N2 = 50; the mean age is 14.9 ± 0.84 years; the mean height is 149.61 ± 1.38 cm; the mean weight is 45.43 ± 0.75kg and the mean BMI is 20.25 ± 0.51) were selected from different schools of Punjab, India. Height measurements were taken by using the standard anthropometric rod to the nearest 0.5 cm. The subject’s weight was measured with portable weighing machine to the nearest 0.5 kg. Blood pressure measurements were made by using a standard mercury sphygmomanometer. The independent samples t-test was applied to assess the differences of blood pressure between urban and rural school going boys. Results indicated that urban boys had significantly more body weight (p˂0.05), body mass index (p˂0.05), systolic and diastolic blood pressure (p˂0.05) values as compare to rural boys.

Keywords: Blood pressure, Urban, Rural, School, Boys.
