Abstract

            The purposes of this study aimed to explore the Chiang Rai Rajabhat University students’ healthcare behaviors, and factors influencing their healthcare, as well as to analyze direct, indirect, and overall influences on the Chiang Rai Rajabhat University students’ healthcare behaviors. External variables used in this study included environmental and media factors; otherwise, internal variables encompassed both mental and social factors, as well as healthcare behaviors. For research methodology, a questionnaire was conducted with 600 1st – 4th- year Chiang Rai Rajabhat University students. Statistic descriptions used for this study included descriptive statistics, observatory variable correlation analysis, the analysis of casual factors influencing the Chiang Rai Rajabhat University students’ healthcare behaviors, and the LISREL program was finally analyzed with its structural model consistency compared with its empirical data.

            The findings of the study were detailed as follows:

  1. The Chiang Rai Rjabaht University students’ healthcare behaviors were mostly found in terms of their environmental management, followed by their healthcare checkup, their fitness, their relaxation, their stress management, and their nutrition and medicine;
  2. In analyzing this constructed model related to factors influencing the Chiang Rai Rajabhat University students’ healthcare behaviors compared with its empirical data, with its chi-square () of 37.19, its degree of freedom (df) of 66, its probability of 0.56, and with its goodness of fit index (GFI) of 0.99, and its adjusted goodness of fit index (AGFI) of 0.98), was confirmed with its hypothesis based on its consistency theory compared with empirical data. In addition to this study, its root mean squared residual (RMR) of 0.016, and its diagonal-steeped q-plot were resulted in its model consistency compared with its empirical data. Also, variables found in this model were not significantly different. On the other hands, its R SQUARE of 0.80 related to variables on the Chiang Rai Rajabhat University students’ healthcare behaviors were resulted from 80% of its model variances on their healthcare behaviors;
  3. Variables found in influences on the Chiang Rai Rajabhat University students’ healthcare, with its significant difference of 0.01, were mostly found in terms of environmental, and
  4. 4. Variables found in direct influences on the Chiang Rai Rajabhat University students’ healthcare behaviors, with its significant difference of 0.01, were mostly found in terms of environmental.

            The indirect variable influences on the Chiang Rai Rajabhat University students’ healthcare behaviors found that social and media haven’t influence on the Chiang Rai Rajabhat University students’ healthcare behaviors.
