Abstract

Quality of life refers to an individual’s perception of their position in life in the context of the culture and value systems in which they live and in relation to the irgoals, expectations, standards and concerns. It is a broad ranging concept affected in a complex way by the person’s physical health, psychological state, level of independence, social relationships, personal beliefs, and their relationship to salient features of their environment. Thus, quality of life has physical, psychological, and social aspects that must be taken into account. The purpose of the present research is to compare the health related quality of life of the active and sedentary faculty members of IAU, Qazvin Branch. 140 faculty members with an average age of 40 were randomly selected as the sample of this applied, descriptive research. The data was collected using a researcher-made demographics questionnaire, Short Form Health Survey (SF-36), and Becke’s questionnaire. Based on the type and frequency of exercise per week, the samples were divided into an active group and a sedentary group. Descriptive statistics (mean, standard deviation, tables, and figures) and inferential statistics (Pearson correlation coefficient, t test and U Mann-Whitney and Tukey’s test) were used for data analysis. The results showed active female members had a significantly better quality of life than sedentary female members. Also active male members had a significantly better quality of life than sedentary male members. Moreover, there was a significant difference between male and female faculty members in terms of quality of life, and men had better quality of life than women. It can thus be concluded that active people have better quality of life than sedentary people.
