AIMS: Asses the differences in the compliance rate with antihypertensive treatment and the sociodemographic features related with it. METHODOS: Desing:Retrospective observacional study. Subjects: Patients diagnosed and treated of hypertension by general practitioner in our province. We selected a random sample with 1197 patients from different health centers. Variables: Age, Gender, Labour situation, Educational level, Marital status, patient knowledge about hypertension and patient compliance measured by the Morisnky-Green test. Data collection: Personal interview with each patient. MAIN RESULTS: 715 patients (60%) showed a good compliance, 365 subjects (30%) got medium compliance rate and 117 patients (10%) were classified as 'bad compliers'. The differences with the different intergroups measured by the Morinsky-Green test are significative statistically with the age (p=0.002), gender (p=0.009), Marital status (p=0.000) and Labour situation (p=0.012). They are not difference for educational level (p=0.080).
