Author(s): S Mohan and Dr. STN Rajeswaran
The purpose of this study was to find out the impact of physiological status between urban and rural students in Tamil Nadu Agricultural University, Coimbatore. This study was conducted in rural and urban students (Tamil Nadu Agricultural University, Coimbatore) during the month of July 2018. The present study focused on using convenient sampling to select students from one University. After chosen the specific University, I used the systematic random sampling method to select rural and urban students. Study was conducted out of 200 male students, 100 rural students and 100 urban students were selected from Tamil Nadu Agricultural University. The physiological status tests were taken from urban and rural students in same condition. The tests were included: cardio – respiratory endurance, blood pressure and heart rate. Descriptive (average, standard deviation) and inferential statistics (independent t- test) were used for data analysis. The results of the study indicated that in all measured parameters there were significant mean difference between rural and urban students (p<0.05). Rural students were stronger than urban students. The life style of rural children likely was the best reason for their better physiological status.
