Abstract: In 1997 and 1998, a questionnaire was mailed to elder and middle-aged graduates of Japan Women's College of Physical Education in order to examine how sports college education had effects on their lifestyle choices and their health conditions in older age. The questionnaire contained items about their daily eating habits, exercise habits, drinking and smoking patterns and health conditions in general. The respondents were divided into five groups according to their ages and college major. The five categories were the advanced-aged sports group (ages 65 and over), the middle-aged sports group ( ages 43-54), the middle-aged dance group (ages 43-54), the middle-aged nursery group (ages 43-54) and the advance-aged nursery group (ages 60-65). The advanced-age groups (both sport and nursery groups) were found to have healthier results in such categories as leisure time, eating habits and smoking and drinking habits when compared to the middle-aged groups. The sport and dance related groups exhibited better overall exercise patterns. This was especially noticeable when comparing the advanced-age sport group with the advanced-age nursery group. Advanced-age groups in general were found to be more satisfied with their lives, especially those in the sports group. The sports group respondent's conditions of health (blood pressure, serum total cholesterol, blood sugar levels) were also found to be at least identical and/or better than similar survey results found in the Japanese general female population. The results of this survey suggested that elder respondents in specialized college sport programs have healthier lifestyles and better health conditions than similarly polled elder women in Japan's general female population.
