#### Abstract

Overweight is the fifth risk factor to the global deaths. More than 2.8 million adults die every year caused by overweight. The high BMI (Body Mass Index) is one of the primary risk factors of hypertension. The study aimed to determine the correlation between BMI and blood pressure. A cross-sectional study was conducted to 869 respondents. Subject was people aged 25-64 in Kediri City. Sample was categorized into 2 age groups between two genders and chosen with multistage cluster random sampling. Blood pressure was measured with digital tension meter, weight with digital bodyweight scale, and height with stature meter. Results showed that ratio between gender and age group was similar. Average BMI was 24.29 kg/m2, systolic blood pressure (SBP) was 131 mmHg, and diastolic blood pressure (DBP) was 87 mmHg. There was a correlation between BMI with SBP (r=0.19, p value-0.000) and BMI with DBP (r=0.17, p value=0.000). Stratified by gender, the coefficient correlation among male (r=0.28, p value=0.000) was stronger than female (r=0.24, p value-0.000), and age of 45-64 had r=0.21 (p value=0.000). Stronger correlation was male with age of 25-44 (r=0.33, p value= 0.000). We conclude that study showed there was a correlation between BMI and blood pressure.
