ABSTRACT

In order to cope with the crisis of aging society, this study examined the current status of daily sports activities and satisfaction levels among middle- and old-aged people between 50 and 64 years old in South Korea. A total of 357 structured questionnaires were distributed and 299 (84%) were fully completed and used for analysis. As a result of the analysis, statistically significant differences were found by the type of sports activity centers with respect to the number of sports activities, goals, service satisfaction, and willingness to use the individual budget system. The users of membership sports centers reported the highest level of satisfaction. Considering that all tax-based public services should aim to improve public welfare, the universal provision of daily sports services should be regarded as a part of social security policies to address various problems in aging society.
