Results Overall, 26·4% (95% CI 26·0‐26·8%) of the adult population in 2000 had hypertension (26·6% of men [26·0–27·2%] and 26·1% of women [25·5–26·6%]), and 29·2% (28·8–29·7%) were projected to have this condition by 2025 (29·0% of men [28·6–29·4%] and 29·5% of women [29·1–29·9%]). The estimated total number of adults with hypertension in 2000 was 972 million (957–987 million); 333 million (329–336 million) in economically developed countries and 639million (625–654 million) in economically developing countries. The number of adults with hypertension in 2025 was predicted to increase by about 60% to a total of 1·56 billion (1·54–1·58 billion).
