African American Women and Eating Disturbances: A Meta-Analysis.
O'Neill, Shannon K.
Journal of Black Psychology, v29 n1 p3-16 Feb 2003
Data from 18 studies were reviewed to investigate the relationship between ethnicity and eating disturbances, focusing on the relationship between African American and white women. Although white women had more risk of eating disturbances, the effect size was small. White women had slightly more risk for all eating disturbances combined. African American women did not differ significantly from white women in risk for bulimia and binge eating disorders. (Contains references.) (SM)
