Abstract Backgroud: To analyze the epidemiologic characteristics of the systemic arterial hypertension (SAH) in the adult population of Cuiabá, Brazil and the associations between physical activity (PA) and physical inactivity. Method: Cross-sectional population-based study, with 1.298 adults, ages between 20 and 59 years, of Cuiabá, Brazil. Through inquiry of simple random sample, with replacement, of domiciliary application, sociodemographic information and of life habits were obtained including the PA, with measures of blood pressure (BP), weight, height and waist circumference. Results:<\b>
The prevalence of the SAH was 28.3%, with significant predominance in men (30.5% versus 17.8%). The population being studied presented 23% of smokers, 22.3% of former smokers and 54.1% with alcoholic habit. The independent association between SAH and gender, age, less than 8 years of study, per capita income inferior to 3 to 6 minimum wages, overweight and obesity, central adiposity and condition of the former smoker. In relation to the PA in the free time: physical inactivity occurred in 55.7%, moderate in 11.1% and intense in 1.1%. At work: physical inactivity in 42.2%, moderate in 13.3% and intense in 20%. Overall, there was no association between SAH and sedentary activity, however an association between arterial hypertension and sedentary activity during free time and work was noticed. Conclusion:<\b>
The SAH was association with classic risk factors and suggests the further study of the relations between high blood pressure and physical activity, during leisure and work.
