The prevalence of eating disorders in a uk college population a reclassification of an earlier study


, : The prevalence of eating disorders in a uk college population a reclassification of an earlier study. International Journal of Eating Disorders 7(3): 393-398

In 1981 we published a study of eating disorders in a college population using the Eating Attitudes Test entitled "Subclinical Anorexia Nervosa" (Button and Whitehouse, 1981). In view of recent developments in the classification of eating disorders, we have reexamined this data and reclassified high scoring subjects. Our findings, viewed in the context of other recent British studies, are not consistent with the apparent increase in prevalence of eating disorders in the U.S. Implications for the epidemiology and classification of eating disorders are discussed.
