AUTHOR(S): Dr. Amandeep Singh
Background: In the Indian context, there is very less literature available pertaining to the physical activity patterns. Therefore, the aim of this study is to assess the gender differences of physical activity in University students. Methods: The sample size was 109 University students recruited conveniently, out of which 61 were males and 48 were females. Global Physical Activity Questionnaire (GPAQ) was administered to collect the data. Mann-Whitney U test was employed to analyze the data. Results: Significant differences were observed in recreational domain, moderate intensity and overall physical activity (p<.05). Contrarily, no significant differences were found in work domain, transportation domain and in vigorous intensity activity. Conclusions: Males were found to be more physically active than females in recreational domain, moderate intensity and overall physical activity.
