    PROMJENE U TJELESNOJ NEAKTIVNOSTI U HRVATSKOJ – STUDIJA CroHort ----- Ciljem je ovoga rada usporediti ankete provedene 2003. i 2008. godine u sklopu Hrvatske kohortne studije kardiovaskularnog zdravlja (CroHort) vezane uz tjelesnu aktivnost/neaktivnost stanovnika Republike Hrvatske. Prikupljeni podatci ukazuju na značajan pad intenziteta tjelesne aktivnosti 2008. u odnosu na 2003, prema načinu odlaska na posao (60,7%), razini tjelesnog napora na radnom mjestu (72,2%), i učestalosti tjelesne aktivnosti poduzimane u slobodno vrijeme ispitanika (55,8%). Kako bi se spriječio rizik od srčano-žilnih bolesti i podigla svijest javnosti o potencijalnoj zdravstvenoj prijetnji koju predstavlja tjelesna neaktivnost, niz podrobno osmišljenih strategija u svrhu promicanja zdravlja trebao bi biti proveden, a koji bi podjednako obuhvatio sve slojeve hrvatskoga društva.

    English abstract

    The aim of this paper was to compare the surveys conducted respectively in 2003 and 2008 within the Croatian Adult Health Cohort Study (CroHort) regarding the physical activity/inactivity of the inhabitants of the Republic of Croatia. The collected data show a significant decline in the intensity of physical activity in 2008 with regards to 2003, regarding the way of getting to work (60.7%), the level of physical strain at work (72.2%), and the frequency of physical activity taken in the subjects' spare time (55.8%). In order to prevent the risk of cardiovascular diseases and to raise the public awareness of the potential health threat physical inactivity poses, a number of thoroughly conceived health promotion strategies should be implemented, which would equally encompass all the segments of Croatian society.
