a Data not shown due to small bases
b Physically inactive = fewer than 30 minutes of moderate or vigorous activity a week
c Bases vary: Bases vary: The figures for smoking status, alcohol consumption, physical activity, BMI, family history of CVD, NS-SEC, household income and SIMD are based on all adults participating in the main interview. As bases for each measure vary, the lowest and highest bases are presented here
d Bases vary: The hypertensive figures are based on all adults participating in the nurse visit in 2008 and 2009 combined with valid blood pressure readings
