Association between high %BF estimated by equations with BMI and WC and hypertension in adults. PR: Prevalence ratios; CI95%: confidence intervals of 95%. Model 1: Analysis adjusted by sociodemographic variables (age, skin color, educational level and per capita family income). Model 2: Analysis adjusted by sociodemographic variables and health behaviors (smoking, problematic alcohol use, physical activity and consumption of fruits and vegetables). Model 3: Analysis adjusted by sociodemographic variables, health behaviors, height and waist circumference (for %BF estimated by equations with BMI) or body mass index (for %BF estimated by equations with WC).
