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.

Abstract in Croatian

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.
