Introduction: High blood pressure is one of the most important health problems in the world. In provinces of Iran, the prevalence of obesity and high blood pressure has an increasing trend.

Objective: This study aimed to determine the effect of blood pressure on the population-attributable fraction of obesity and abdominal obesity in males living in Qom province, Iran.

Materials and Methods: In this study, the data of non-communicable diseases surveillance in 2009 were obtained. Odds ratios using the data were obtained from Lipid and Glucose study. After standardizing the data rate based on EXCEL software, the population-attributable risk for Qom province based on the above formula was calculated.

Results: In Qom province, in terms of population-attributable fraction of hypertension attributable to obesity, the highest rate of 31.07% was in males, and among males aged 55-65 years it was 10.1%.

Discussion and Conclusion: Given the importance of blood pressure prevalence and the impact on cardiovascular diseases, it is necessary to prevent the spread of this disease and its risk factors such as obesity and abdominal obesity in males of Qom, taking effective measures.

Keywords: Abdominal Obesity, Blood Pressure, Obesity, Men, Population Attributable Fraction.
