Abstract [en]

AIM: Children and adolescents in the industrial world are becoming less

physically active and are adopting a sedentary lifestyle in front of computers

and TV. The aim of the present investigation was to determine self-related

health, physical activity, prevalence of overweight and body complaints in

high school students in Norway, and to compare students in academic

programs with those in vocational programs. METHODS: Seven hundred and

two high school students aged 16-19 years were included in the study. A

questionnaire was completed in three high schools and included questions

about weight and height, health, physical activity, type of physical

activity/sport, intensity, possible injuries or complaints during the last three

months. RESULTS: Twenty three percent of the students suffers from

overweight/obesity are at risk of being overweight. Males reported better

health than females (P<0.02). Sixty-six percent of the study group reported

body complaints during the last three months, a higher number of females

than males (P=0.001). Students in vocational programs reported poorer selfrelated

health than those in academic programs and the males reported

better self-related health generally than females. Furthermore, there were a

higher level of prevalence of overweight students in vocational programs

than academic programs (P=0.039). CONCLUSION: It is important to make it

easy for school children and adolescents to do physical activity at school and

during leisure time in order to prevent overweight and obesity as well as

chronic diseases later in life.
