While reading the article Treatment Responses of Inpatient Eating Disorder Women with and without Co-occurring Obsessive-compulsive Disorder it stated that most females, who have eating disorders, start off when they are in high school. About 96% of the women who are diagnosed with an eating disorder are white and about 82% of the patients in the chart who have eating disorders are also not married. Not only does it show percentages from studies from patients who were diagnosed with disorders but also how they were treated.

This resource is helpful because it gives data from studies that show the different types of women who had a type of eating disorder, during what level of education did the woman start developing their disorder, how severe was the illness, and the ethnicity of the patients. It also gives background information on how they got all their data. By knowing what the earliest time that eating disorders develop, people can reach out to kids in high school to prevent them from starting and find help if needed.
