Abstract:Purpose: The purpose of this article is to examine perceptions of factors deriving from the theory of planned behaviour among younger adults in times of public health crisis, their self-protective behaviour compared to other age groups, and test the predictive factors according to the theory of planned behaviour. Design/Methods/Approach: An online survey has been conducted to examine self-protective behaviour in times of public health crisis. The survey was distributed to Slovenian citizens (n = 280) using the social network Facebook. Descriptive statistics were used to describe the sample and measured variables. Multiple regression analysis was conducted to determine associations between identified factors. Findings: The results of the study indicate that there are no significant differences in self-reported self-protection between younger adults and others. Additionally, attitude toward self-protective measures is the most important predictor of self-protective behaviour for both age groups. Only the attitude is significantly associated with self-protective behaviour among young adults, whereas among others, all three predictors are significantly associated with self-protective behaviour, explaining nearly twice the variance. Research Limitations/Implications: This research contributes to the understanding of motivators that drive individuals to engage in self-protective behaviour in times of health crises. It provides insight into young adults' self-protective behaviour. Most of the limitations are related to the sample, which only contains respondents from one social network and one country. Originality/Value: To the best of our knowledge, this is the first study that explored the self-protective behaviour of young adults during COVID-19 using the theory of planned behaviour and compares the differences in self-protective behaviour predictors among different age groups.

Title:Samozaščitno vedenje med mladostniki v času javne zdravstvene krize
Abstract:Namen prispevka: Namen prispevka je preučiti zaznave mladostnikov v času javne zdravstvene krize skladno z dejavniki teorije načrtovanega vedenja, njihovo samozaščitno vedenje v primerjavi z ostalimi starostnimi skupinami ter preučiti vpliv dejavnikov teorije načrtovanega vedenja na samozaščitno delovanje. Metode: Izvedli smo empirično raziskavo v obliki spletnega vprašalnika. Spletni vprašalnik smo s pomočjo družbenega omrežja Facebook razdelili med slovenske državljane (n = 280). Vzorec ter spremenljivke smo opisali s pomočjo opisne statistike. Povezave med dejavniki smo ugotavljali s pomočjo večkratne regresijske analize. Ugotovitve: Rezultati raziskave kažejo na to, da med starostnimi skupinami ni statističnih razlik v samoporočanem samozaščitnem delovanju. Odnos do zaščitnih ukrepov se je izkazal za najpomembnejši dejavnik pri napovedovanju samozaščitnega delovanja med obema starostnima skupinama. Med mladostniki je odnos do zaščitnih ukrepov edini statistično značilen napovedni dejavnik, medtem ko so med ostalimi starostnimi skupinami statistično značilni vsi napovedni dejavniki teorije načrtovanega vedenja. Omejitve/uporabnost raziskave: Raziskava prispeva k razumevanju motivacijskih dejavnikov, ki vplivajo na samozaščitno delovanje v času zdravstvene krize. Ta raziskava poda uvid v samozaščitno vedenje mladostnikov. Večina omejitev raziskave se nanaša na vzorec, saj smo odgovore zbirali zgolj med uporabniki enega družbenega omrežja in državljani ene države. Izvirnost/pomembnost prispevka: Gre za prvo raziskavo, ki preučuje samozaščitno delovanje mladostnikov v času pandemije COVID-19 z uporabo teorije načrtovanega delovanja in primerja razlike v pomembnosti napovednih dejavnikov za samozaščitno delovanje med posameznimi starostnimi skupinami.
