Sažetak
The aim of this study was to determine differences in health characteristics based on the frequency of dealing with any physical activity, with the student population of female students at the University of Split. The study included 2849 students of undergraduate studies at the University of Split, ages 19-25 years. Physical engagement was conducted through three sub- variables: sports, recreation and walking, while for assessing health characteristics were determined the incidence of nine different diseases among students. Within the health category was analyzed smoking status of college students. For categorical variables (health characteristics and smoking status) had a representation in terms of frequency and percentage accounts. Relations between the criterion variable and categorical predictive variables were determined with a nonparametric chi-square test. The values of these methods were to determine the differences which were defined with error p< 0.05. Significant differences were determined between students of different smoking status and dealing with recreation as a form of kinesiology engagement (Chi -square= 13.132, p= 0.004). They also identified differences between the health status of healthy student engaged in walking 1- 5 hours or more per week (n= 2328) and the ill students who are significantly less engaged in walking (n= 521). There were no significant differences between smoking status and variable “sports” (Chi-square= 2.836 ; p= 0.417). There were also no significant differences between smoking status and “walking” (Chi -square= 0.59 ; p= 0.9), and health status and variable “recreation” (Chi-square= 3.261 ; p= 0.353), nor between the health status of students and “sports” (Chi-square= 3.304 ; p= 0.347). In conclusion, the impact of physical activity on physical function of people and irrefutably confirmed the importance of physical activity in promoting the reconstruction process in the development and maintenance of functional and motor skills throughout life, and to preserve them until old age.
