Abstract: A healthy life is promoted by active practices that decrease sedentary lifestyles, reducing the risks of occurrence of various diseases. The World Health Organization recognizes the importance of physical activity in physical, mental and social health. This paper presents some of the results obtained from a survey realized in collaboration with the Sports Division of Municipality of ´ Evora to characterize the physical activity of the residents. After an exploratory data analysis, and some comparisons using parametric and non parametric tests, we adjust a logistic regression model to identify enhancers’ factors of physical activity. We conclude that the residents in this municipality have a high physical activity rate and that there are no significant differences in physical activity rate between genders. Physical activity rate decreases drastically with age, varies with the professional situation and increases with qualification. The more likely practitioner is a young male, selfemployed without higher education that knows some sports initiatives and that is satisfied with municipality sports offer.
