Abstract
Objective: To assess the variation of physical activity across different domains.
Method: A total of 1000 male students participated in the study. The participants of age 18-30 years were recruited
from various departments of Guru Nanak Dev University, Amritsar. The convenience sampling method was used to
select the participants. We used International Physical Activity Questionnaire (IPAQ) long form and assessed
physical activity levels in four domains viz. job-related, transportation, domestic and recreational, sport, and leisuretime
domain. Friedman’s test was applied to make multiple comparisons of physical activity, where results were
significant, Wilcoxon Signed Ranks test was used as post-hoc test.
Results: More than half of the participants reported no physical activity in all four domains. Significant differences
were found between the job-related and transportation, domestic and job-related, and recreational and job-related
domains.
Conclusions: Participation in job-related domain was significantly lower than the transportation, domestic and
recreational, sports and leisure domains.

Key words: transportation, leisure, domestic, job
