Sažetak
Introduction Understanding physical activity (PA) levels and its correlates can aid in planning PA promotion interventions. This is the first study to examine the PA level in the Croatian adult population by means of the EPIC-Norfolk Physical Activity Questionnaire (EPAQ2) – assessing past year’s PA in different contexts. The aims of the study were: a) to determine the PA level (total and domain-specific) of th eadult Croatian population and b) to determine the relationship between total PA and selected socio-demographic, lifestyle, and health characteristics. Methods The sample consisted of 551 participants (58.6% females ; age (mean±SD) 41±15 yrs (females) and 44±16 yrs (males)). Public health institutes across Croatian counties were requested to randomly select 10 primary care physicians, which were then instructed to recruit 10 of their adult patients to participate in this study. The participants filled out the EPAQ2 questionnaire and responded to a set of questions on potential correlates of PA (age, body mass index, household income, education, type of settlement, smoking habits, and self-perceived health). Total PA level and PA levels in four domains (work, commuting, home, recreation) were calculated and expressed in MET-hour/week. Results Total PA was significantly higher in females than in males (medians: 133.7 vs 114.8 MET-hour/week, Mann-Whitney U test p=0.002). Significant differences between sexes were observed for PA levels in home (females: 56.9, males: 22.6, p<0.001), recreation (females: 21.1, males: 6.82, p=0.001) and work domains (females: 32.8, males: 60.2, p<0.001). No difference between sexes was found for active transport, where most females and males reported no participation (p=0.076). Additionally, a multiple regression analysis showed that household income (p<0.001) and self-perceived health (p=0.028) are positively, while living in an urban area (p=0.001) is negatively related to total PA. Discussion Total PA level in both sexes was significantly higher than in previous Croatian studies, possibly due to methodological differences. According to the results on domain-specific PA levels and PA correlates, future public health initiatives should be directed toward promotion of PA in transport and leisure time contexts, and focused on low-income persons, suburban and urban areas, and people with poor health.
