Most of the major instruments in the eating disorder field have documented psychometric support only in predominantly White samples. The current study examined the internal consistency, temporal stability, and convergent and discriminant validity of a variety of eating disorder measures in Black (n = 97) and White (n = 179) female undergraduates. Internal consistency coefficients were good (>.76) for all measures for both groups. Temporal stability across 5 months was also adequate in both…

An evaluation of the reliability and construct validity of eating disorder measures in white and black women.
TLDR
Results suggest scores are likely not equivalent across races for several popular measures of eating disorder symptoms and risk factors.
Test-retest reliability of the eating disorder examination-questionnaire (EDE-Q) in a college sample
TLDR
The EDE-Q appears to be a reliable instrument for assessing eating disorder attitudes in both male and female undergraduate students, but is less reliable for assessing ED behaviors, particularly in men.
Test-retest reliability of the eating-disorder examination (EDE) questionnaire.pdf
TLDR
The EDE-Q appears to be a reliable instrument for assessing eating disorder attitudes in both male and female undergraduate students, but is less reliable for assessing ED behaviors, particularly in men.
Psychometric properties of measures of eating disorder risk in Latina college women.
TLDR
Findings indicate that commonly used measures of ED risk have adequate reliability and validity in Latina college women, and comparison data suggest that ED risk may be similar or even higher in Latin college women relative to Caucasian college women.
Eating Disorder Examination-Questionnaire: Evaluating factor structures and establishing measurement invariance with Asian/Hawaiian/Pacific Islander, Black, and White American college men.
OBJECTIVE This study evaluated the factor structure and invariance of the Eating Disorder Examination-Questionnaire (EDE-Q) in a sample of Asian/Hawaiian/Pacific Islander (n = 163), Black (n = 155),
The Eating Disorder Examination Questionnaire: reliability and validity of the Italian version
TLDR
The study showed the good psychometric properties of the new Italian version of the EDE-Q 6.0, and validated its use in Italian eating disorder patients, particularly in young females with anorexia nervosa.
Evaluating patterns of inconsistent and missing data on the eating disorders examination-questionnaire in a sample of treatment-seeking adults and adolescents
TLDR
The results suggest that missing and inconsistent responding on the EDE-Q in clinical samples may not warrant specialized consideration within statistical analyses.
Adaptation and validation of the Eating Disorder Examination-Questionnaire in English among urban Indian adolescents.
TLDR
Findings indicate the reliability and validity of the EDE-Q among English-speaking urban Indian adolescents will facilitate further research examining the prevalence and nature of eating pathology among adolescents in India.
Factor analysis of the adolescent version of the Eating Disorders Examination Questionnaire (EDE-Q): results from Swedish general population and clinical samples
TLDR
The EDE-Q appears to measure different underlying aspects of eating disorder psychopathology in young teenagers compared to adults, and the dimensions underlying disordered eating in young girls may become increasingly differentiated with time.

Temporal stability of the Eating Disorder Examination Questionnaire.
TLDR
The high internal consistency of EDE-Q items supports its use as a screening instrument in two-phase epidemiologic studies and demonstrates a high degree of temporal stability, whereas the stability of items addressing eating disorder behaviors is much lower.
Measuring eating concerns in Black and White adolescent girls.
TLDR
The factor structure was generally similar for Black and White girls, although the separate body satisfaction factor and lack of shared variance for the perfectionism factor for Black girls suggest that EDI data obtained from ethnic minority samples may need to be interpreted cautiously.

TLDR
The current results cast doubt on the factor structure and internal consistency of the EDI when used with a nonclinical sample, unless just five subscales (drive for thinness, perfectionism, bulimia, interpersonal distrust, and maturity fears) are included.
Similarities and differences between Caucasian and African American college women on eating and dieting expectancies, bulimic symptoms, dietary restraint, and disinhibition.
TLDR
The measures correlate similarly across race, suggesting that the risk process may be similar for both races, but African American women endorsed significantly fewer risk factors and fewer symptoms.
Test-retest reliability of the Eating Disorder Inventory 2.
Ethnic differences in the prediction of eating and body image disturbances among female adolescent psychiatric inpatients.
TLDR
It is suggested that different patterns of factors may contribute to the maintenance of eating and body image disturbances across ethnic groups, and future research testing models of the etiology or maintenance of these disturbances needs to include ethnicity.
Recurrent binge eating in black American women.
TLDR
Black women were as likely as white women to report binge eating or vomiting during the preceding 3 months, and were more likely to report fasting and the abuse of laxatives or diuretics.
The reliability of the Eating Disorder Examination-Self-Report Questionnaire Version (EDE-Q).
TLDR
Investigation of the internal consistency and test-retest reliability of the Eating Disorder Examination-Self-Report Questionnaire Version (EDE-Q), a 41-item measure adapted from the EDE, supports the psychometric adequacy of the Ede.
The Dutch Eating Behavior Questionnaire (DEBQ) for assessment of restrained, emotional, and external eating behavior
TLDR
The norms and Cronbach's alpha coefficients of the scales and also the Pearson's correlation coefficients to assess interrelationships between scales indicate that the scales have a high internal consistency and factorial validity, but their external validity has yet to be investigated.
Eating disorders in white and black women.
TLDR
Results suggest that eating disorders, especially anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa, are more common among white women than among black women, and health professionals need to be more alert to the possibility of eating disorders in women.
