Objective to compare the prevalence of the metabolic syndrome and its main components in the population of Tangshan city at the age of 35–70 years. Methods the 3,562 households of population from Tangshan were chosen by cluster sampling during 2005–2006. The physical examinations and Laboratory tests were performed. Metabolic syndrome was defined according to the International Diabetes Federation consensus worldwide definition in 2005. Results 4,761 subjects participated in the study. The age-standardized prevalence of the MS was 18.7 % in male and 31.8 % in female (P < 0.05). The residents in urban (27.4 %) had a higher prevalence of MS than in rural (23.1 %) (P < 0.05). In female, the prevalence of MS was increased together with age increased either in urban or rural (P < 0.05). Conclusion there is a big difference in the prevalence rate of metabolic syndrome between rural and urban. The prevention and contro1 the metabolic syndrome is urgently in China.
