Abstract

Background: This study presents normative data on the Spanish Version of the Eating Disorders Examination Questionnaire (S-EDE-Q) for adolescents and young adults in Spain. Method: A sample of 1,543 men and women, aged 12 - 21 years, completed the S-EDE-Q as part of a larger assessment battery. Results: Means, standard deviations, clinical significance and percentile ranks for the raw Restraint, Eating Concern, Shape Concern, and Weight Concern subscales and the Global Score by age group and gender are presented. Data on any and regular occurrences of dieting, bingeing and compensatory behaviors by age group and gender are reported. Compared with men, women scored higher on all the subscales and reported more key eating disorders (ED) and compensatory behavior. Compared with adolescents, young adults scored higher on the Restraint and Shape Concern subscales and reported more dietary restraint (DR), objective binge episodes (OBE) and diuretic misuse (DIUR). Conclusions: These results can help researchers and clinicians interpret the S-EDE-Q scores of adolescents and young adults in Spanish-speaking countries. © 2013 Psicothema.
