Title: Social and cultural factors related to eating problems among adolescents in Norway

Synopsis: A randomly selected and nationally representative sample of 11,315 Norwegian adolescents (aged 13 to 20) was surveyed for eating problems, as measured by a brief version of the Eating Attitudes Test (EAT). The adolescents' EAT scores showed only minor variations according to social class, and none according to urbanization and region. Adolescent girls involved in aesthetic sports dieted marginally more than other sporting girls. Non-Western immigrant adolescents had higher scores on EAT as compared to other immigrating adolescents and Norwegian adolescents.
