Physical activity, Study, High school sport, Limited area


The latest survey by the Central Statistical Institute (ISTAT) in 2015 reports in Italy an increase in the number of sports practitioners compared to 2011. They are greater in girls and more distributed on the 4 age groups chosen as a representative sample. The chosen disciplines vary according to age classes and the previous survey, indicating a significant increase in dance for females and fitness for males. This study doesn’t focus on any reasons for the choices, on the related to the study or work activities and the data don’t emerge locally. The aim of the study is to investigate a limited area, an homogeneous sample based on high school students and to investigate possible motivations including the relationship with the study. Data show that more females (63%) than males (37%) replied to the questionnaire and that a third of the students study 3 hours a day. 60% of students practices sport and the most practiced ones are fitness (38%), dance (19%) and football (16%). The lack of time due to the study prevents physical activity for a third of the students, followed by a lack of motivation (30%) and facilities in the area (13%). In conclusion, results suggest that the study circumscribed locally, with a representative sample of the reference population is more reliable and can be used as a basis for any actions to be taken.
