Sažetak
Background: To analyse the differences in the self-estimate of life quality depending on the ageing type – passive, active.
Subjects and methods: Life-quality linked to health was measured with an SF-36 survey, which gives multi-dimensional criteria
of health and life-quality. SF-36 survey represents a theoretically based and empirically proven operationalization of two overal
health concepts, which are body and mental health, and its two general manifestations, functioning, and welfare. 200 examinees in
total, aged from 55 to 92, were included in the research. Divided by sex, in the research participated 148 women and 52 men.
Depending on the ageing way, the examinees were divided into 2 categories: passive ageing (n=100), active ageing (n=100), and for
these groups a detailed result analysis was done. Statistical analysis includes descriptive statistics, Hi-square test, Spearman’s
correlation coefficient, and Mann-Whitney U test.
Results: In all dimensions of health, examinees from the category Active ageing achieve higher scores, which indicates better
health and better functioning. Between the groups, a statistically significant difference was determined, on the following dimensions:
Overall health, Pains, Energy and vitality, Social operations, and Limits due to emotional difficulties. With the Hi-square test, it was
determined that there are differences between the groups. The biggest difference can be seen in the reply categories related to health
deterioration (χ2=10.391; df=4; p=0.034). Examinees from the Active ageing group mention significantly less that their health has
gotten worse compared to the previous year (26% of the active ones state that their health is somewhat worse, and only 2% that their
health is significantly worse, compared to the passive ones where 36% state that their health is worse, and 9% that it’s much worse
compared to the year before). Tested was the difference between arithmetic middles on the issue of mental health based on the ageing
type (p>0.05), and the results show that it’s not statistically significant.
Conclusion: On all dimensions, examinees from the category Active ageing achieve higher scores, which indicates a better
health and better functioning.
