There is growing evidence that hypertension, one of the major modifiable risk factors for cardiovascular disease (CVD), is established early in life. Given this, it is important to discover when hypertension first becomes apparent. Further, it is of particular importance to examine the ethnic differences in blood pressure (BP) in children, given the variation in rates of CVD morbidity and mortality among adults from different ethnic groups.
