Abstract


The aim of this study is to examine the physical activity levels of academicians working at the sports science faculties of state and foundation universities. The sample group of the study consists of academicians working at Marmara University and Istanbul Gelişim University. As a data collection tool in research, in addition to the personal information form "International Physical Activity questionnaire", developed by the World Health Organization and adapted to Turkish by Öztürk (2005) was used. In the evaluation of the data, besides descriptive statistics, Chi-Square test was used. As a result of the analysis, a difference was found between the physical activity levels of the academicians working at Marmara University according to their gender, age and monthly income level. No statistically significant difference was found between the gender, age, marital status, weekly lesson hours, university service years, monthly income and body mass indexes and physical activity levels of the academicians working at Istanbul Gelişim University. As a result, it has been determined that the participation levels of the academicians working in the sports science faculties of state and foundation universities differ in terms of some socio-demographic characteristics.
