In June 2020, STRIPED, in collaboration with the Academy for Eating Disorders (AED) and Deloitte Access Economics conducted the most comprehensive examination to date of the social and economic burden of eating disorders in the United States. The product of a yearlong collaboration, the report provides a critical new body of evidence on the devastating impact of eating disorders on individuals, families, and society. We also present costs and key findings by state, which we generated by extrapolating to each state from the national data proportionate to each state’s population size.
