The results showed that the respondents with hypertension, grade I status as many as 41 people (75.9%) experienced stress while respondents with hypertension, grade II status as many as 27 people (81.8%) experienced stress. Kendall correlation test results for the variable stress levels with the degree of hypertension, showed a correlation coefficient of 0.069 with p = 0.521. These results show a correlation between stress and the the degree of hypertension, in the same direction. However, the price of the correlation coefficient between stress and the degree of hypertension showed a very weak relationship between stress and the degree of hypertension, (0.069 <0.2). When viewed from the price of p = 0.521 (> 0.05) so there is no significant correlation between the two variables.
