Data analysis was done in univariate and bivariate using chi-square test with significance level of p<0.005.

Results: The prevalence of elderly with low physical activity levels and good sleep quality was 33.8%. Meanwhile, elderly with moderate physical activity levels and good sleep quality was 50%, and elderly with high physical activity levels and good sleep quality was 64,7%.
