In this study, skin color was measured by reflectometry in blacks in three US cities. Blood pressure was higher in darker-skinned individuals; however, there was also a strong correlation between socioeconomic status, as measured by the Green index (which classifies education, income, and occupation ) and high blood pressure, as well as between educational level and high blood pressure. Higher systolic and diastolic blood pressures were significantly associated with darker skin color independent of age, body mass index, blood glucose concentration, urea nitrogen, uric acid, and urinary sodium and potassium in a multiple linear-regression analysis.
