Research question one; is there relationship between ethnic identity, attitudes and behaviors measured by Drive for thinness and Body dissatisfaction to development of eating disorders?
After which correlation analyses for both black and white participants will be used to determine the outcome.
The order follows for all five research questions respectively.
However, to my opinion the outcomes may not reflect the relationship between disordered eating behavior and age factor. But, on the basis of racial groups score, I expect the Black participants to score low on subscale of disordered eating measure and high on the measure of ethnic identity as opposed to White participants. This is in accordance with my review of literature on the passed studies which I have qualitatively analyzed.
