Frequency of eating problems among Asian and Caucasian college women.
We compared the frequencies of Asian and Caucasian women who were classified by their responses to the EAT-26 scale as having cating problems.
We noted that relative to their Asian peers, our sample of Caucasian women was 5.5 times more likely to score above the cut-off score for eating problems on this test.
Two earlier studies which had reported opposite results for Asian and Caucasian women were discussed and reevaluated in the context of our data.
