Abstract

The purpose of the present study was to survey the present status of physical activity, among the male youths of Tripura. The total number of subjects selected were 500 college going students with their age ranging between 18 to 23 years from ten (10) Government degree colleges from eight different districts of Tripura state. The variable selected for the study was Physical activity and it was measured using the International Physical Activity Questionnaire (IPAQ) from 2002. The selected variable was analysed using descriptive statistics such as mean, median, mode, range, sum, percentiles, standard deviation, maximum and minimum, standard error of mean, skewness, kurtosis and percentile of the data collected from the male youths of Tripura state. The results revealed significant variations in physical activity patterns across the districts, shedding light on the potential influence of local factors. The considerable differences in physical activity levels across the districts were observed. Across all districts, males consistently showed higher mean physical activity. This pattern was observed in each district individually and was reflective of broader societal trends where males tend to engage in more physical activities.
