  1. p<0.01,p<0.05,p<0.1. 95% confidence intervals are in parenthesis.
  2. Estimates represent the added probability of being hypertensive in women with prior adolescent childbirth relative to women with no adolescent childbirth. Estimates were obtained using linear probability models (LPM) with complex survey weights. All models control for the following (not shown unless indicated): state fixed effects, nutritional status, wealth index quintile, education, marital status, current pregnancy status, religion, caste, lifetime parity, menopause, tobacco or alcohol use, oral contraceptive use, urban/rural residence, and age group fixed effect
