Association between demand–control model components and blood pressure in the ELSA-Brasil study

Exploring heterogeneity using quantile regression analyses
This study from Brazil provides new knowledge about the association between job strain and blood pressure (BP). The innovative analytical strategy, which combined independent assessment of the demand-control model components with gamma and quantile regression analyses, showed that BP associates differently with skill discretion and decision authority and that these associations are heterogeneous over the BP distribution and by use of antihypertensives.
