The objective of this cross-sectional study was to estimate the prevalence of self-reported hypertension and diabetes among the users of primary health care services of Southeast Ribeirão Preto, Brazil, and identify variables which may be associated with these chronic conditions. A stratified sample of 1,055 adult individuals surveyed. Associations were examined by log-binomial regression models and expressed as prevalence ratios (PRs). The prevalence of self-reported hypertension among women was 20.2% (95%CI: 17.5-23.1) and among men was 29.0% (95%CI: 22.9-35.5). The prevalence of self-reported diabetes among women was 6.9% (95%CI: 5.2-8.8) and among men was 12.2% (95% CI: 8.1-17.3). The prevalence of both conditions increases significantly with age. Crude and adjusted PRs indicate no association between socioeconomic status and the self-reported chronic conditions.
