ABSTRACT
In this article are presented results from questionnaire of 5.878 adult individuals in Czech Republic. There were applied various questions regarding age, sex, sport activities, habits and problems in life, magnitude of settlement, level of education, life status etc. Totally there were 19 questions. In this contribution we try to explain determination of sport activity of adult Czech population by parameters of sex, level of education (none education - fundamental - trainee - GCE exam - university) and life status (single - married – divorced – widowed - registered partnership). All respondents were derived in three groups: younger (age 18 – 34 years), medium age (35 - 54) and seniors (over 55). There is proved in this article that majority of adult Czech population does not practise any sport activity (over 70%); the older people are, the less sport activity they practise. Women groups are slightly worse. Also level of education determines sport activity. Individuals with high schools and university education practise sport significantly more often like others, also in this parameter are men slightly better. Life status also influences sport practise parameter. Better results have singles, married and divorced are slightly worse, while widowed are clear the worst. 
This questionnaire is part of The project "Creating a research team for the purpose of determining the level of physical activity (inactivity) in selected age groups of the population of men and women in the Czech Republic" (CZ.1.07/2.3.00/20.0044) is financed by the European Social Fund and the state budget of the Czech Republic.
