 Abstract
This study examined changes in health behavior and prevalence of hypertension and diabetes during five years and analyzed determinants affecting on geographic variations of them. Data from Korean Community Health Survey in the period of 2008 and 2013 with 246 small districts were analyzed. Data were analyzed using convergence tools such as geographic information system tool and decision tree. During the five years period, areas of the increases in smoking and drinking were southwest regions showed increased smoking and areas of increases in physical activity are western regions. Areas of the increases in the prevalence of hypertension were west and south regions and in the prevalence of diabetes were east and north regions. Determinants affecting on regional variations in the prevalence of hypertension and diabetes were drinking, physical activity, obesity, arthritis, depressive symptom and stress. Mental health program should be developed for non-communicable disease. Thus, to decrease the prevalence of hypertension and diabetes, our study emphasized the necessity to develop customized mental health policies according to the region-specific characteristics.
