It sounds an awful lot like you are asking me to do your homework. If you need to find statistics and don't know how to do that, I suggest you ask your professor for help. We do not do homework for people here at EmpowHER. You won't get much of an education if you don't figure out your own homework.

In your situation here in the US, I would look up stats via the CDC or US Vital Statistics through Google and nose around for the area I was looking for. It can take quite a while if you don't know how to find what you need. County health statistics may not cover it. Anyway, ask your professor and please do your own homework.

I have been on about 50 websites, rung about 500 mental health clinics and emailed millions of people so that I Just know the statistics for my college assignment. My college will be about 10-15 pages long and I was only enquiring if anyone knew the statistics for one sentence!!!! And i'm most definatly not asking anyone to "do my homework for me" I can do it myself thanks, just wondering if someone knew, not asking them to look it up for me. And for the record ive asked my tutor and she didnt know and asked me to go on websites and try to find out infomation through asking people! What would you do if someone said to you, how many people have anorexia in bournemouth ages 14-25 when its not on the internet anywhere at all.

Hi Anon

If you are asking for the Bournemouth area in Dorset, then we would generally not have access to stats since our research is mostly (but not exclusively) done in the US. As Cary said, we are unable to assist with termpapers when it comes to helping to find statistics.

Have you called the NHS? Try there. And remember that there are no true stats for this condition - only reports on the amount diagnosed or treated. A large percentage of eating disorders remain unreported.

Good luck in your research and I'm sorry we're unable to help in this area but we do encourage all students to work this out themselves. Imagine how it was only 15-20 years ago for students when there was NO internet at all!

Ah okay, I didnt know you were an American sight, sorry. Yes iv'e tried all sorts of places in the NHS and they don't seem to know either. Hm yeah I found out some statistics now, but most places have said that there isnt an exact number due to a lot of people being undiagnosed. Thankyou and I didn't think of that, best get myself down the library. x
