ABSTRACT:
The purpose of the study was to find out the discriminating predictors of high blood pressure and normal blood pressure group of teacher. A total sample of 520 (254 males and 266 female) university teachers of Chhattisgarh was selected for the study. The dependent variable for the study was high blood pressure and healthy group of teachers. The independent variables were body mass index, physical activity, age, weight, height, waist hip ratio (anthropometric), hypo-kinetic problems awareness, personal and environmental barrier to physical activity (psychological) and physical activity level. The high blood pressure and normal blood pressure groups were identified by checklist and the other variables were assessed with help of questionnaires, standard equipments. Discriminant analysis was used to analyze the data. The result indicated that the independent variables, age, waist hip ratio and personal barrier to physical activity, emerged out to be discriminating predictors, contributing significantly in discriminating the two groups. These variables contributed 62%, 47.8% and 36.5%, of their variance respectively. Significant positive association between predicting factors with the high blood pressure group was found, indicating their role in HBP problem.
