The prevalence of bulimia nervosa in a Hungarian college and secondary school population



The prevalence of bulimia nervosa in a Hungarian college and secondary school population



PsychoTherapy and Psychosomatics 56(1-2): 43-47



A two-stage survey was conducted to determine the prevalence of bulimia and bulimic behavior in 2 Hungarian nonclinical samples. In the college sample 1.3% of females and 0.8% of males met DSM-III-R diagnostic criteria for bulimia nervosa. In the adolescent sample no bulimic subjects were found, weight control behaviours are infrequent, but the attitudinal antecedents of bulimia are present in females.
