Data from two Epidemiologic Catchment Area Program sites (Los Angeles and North Carolina) were analyzed to examine relations of sexual assault history to eating disorder symptoms.
In regression analyses controlling for age, gender, ethnicity, income, socioeconomic status, and study site, persons with sexual assault history (n=514) were more likely than those not assaulted (n=5511) to report thinking they were too fat (odds ratio [OR]=1.6) ; losing =15 lb (OR=1.86) ; weight loss to 85% of normal (OR=2.08) ; one or more anorexia symptoms (OR=1.81) ; and sudden weight change (OR=2.32).
Ethnicity and income modified the relations.
The data support and association of sexual assault history with eating disorder symptoms.
