  1. Fulltext. Prevalence and correlates of bulimia nervosa and bulimic behaviors in a racially diverse sample of undergraduate students in two universities in Southeast Texas.

    Fulltext.

    This cross-sectional survey used a self-report questionnaire to measure the prevalence and correlates of bulimia nervosa and bulimic behaviors in a sample of undergraduate students enrolled in two state-supported universities in Texas in 1990.

    In one university, the student population was predominantly white ; in the other, it was predominantly nonwhite.

    The prevalence of bulimic behaviors was 5.4% overall, 6.6% for females, and 3.6% for males.

    There was no racial/ethnic difference in the prevalence of bulimia nervosa or bulimic behaviors ; 1.5% of the whites (n=459) and 0.4% of the nonwhites (n=693) were classified as having bulimia nervosa, while 5.5% of the whites and 5.3% of the nonwhites reported bulimic behaviors.

    In univariate analysis, female sex, obesity, dieting behavior, and a family history of alcoholism, drug abuse, and depression were statistically associated with bulimic behaviors.

    After adjustment for covariates, only obesity and dieting behavior were statistically significant. (...)
