URZUA M, Alfonso; CASTRO R, Sandy; LILLO O, America  y  LEAL P, Carolina. EVALUATION OF EATING DISORDERS: PSYCHOMETRIC PROPERTIES OF EDI-2 IN STUDENTS 13 TO 18 YEARS OLD. Rev. chil. nutr. [online]. 2009, vol.36, n.4, pp.1063-1073. ISSN 0717-7518.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-75182009000400002.

Objective: To analyze the psychometric properties of the test EDI-2 to evaluate eating disorders in Chilean adolescents Method: The sample was constituted by 1,429 adolescents (595 men and 835 women) between 13 and 18 years from the city of Antofagasta, to whom the EDI-2 test was applied. The reliability and the validity of the instrument were evaluated by factorial analysis and t-test. Results: The majority of the dimensions and the total scale have alphas above 0.70. Factorial structure observed was similar to the theoretical proposal. Conclusions: The EDI-2 test with corrections applied to Chilean population is a reliable and valid instrument for use as a screening tool in early detection of eating disorders.
