ABSTRACT
The main purpose of this research was to examine the relationship between depressive symptomatology and the development of heart disease in Hispanic Puerto Rican elderly individuals and also to assess the validity of the Spanish translation of the Beck Depression Inventory (BDI-II) for this population. A probabilistic sample of 410 Hispanic men and women ages 65 years and older was drawn from all of the residents in independent residential housing projects for elderly individuals in Puerto Rico. Our results suggest that depression alone is not associated with an increased risk for high blood pressure in Puerto Rican elderly living in independent residential housing projects.
