The results indicated that risky behavior (overall index) among men and women such as drugs, alcohol, smoking, violence, sexual behavior, relationships with the opposite sex and dangerous driving was significant and also higher in men than women. Also, risky behavior (overall index) such as smoking and dangerous driving is significant among singles and married that is significantly higher in singles. The Pearson statistical exam also showed that there is a significant negative correlation between the degree of religiosity and riskybehavior.
