This study was undertaken in order to examine the relationship of an eating disorder, health locus of control, and demographic characteristics to eating disorder of college women, and to determine factors affecting an eating disorder of college women. The subjects were 282 students of a single university in Busan. The instruments used for this study was a survey of general characteristics, eating disorder, health locus of control, and self-esteem. Data analysis was done by use of mean, percentage, t-test, ANOVA, Pearson correlation coefficients and stepwise multiple regression with a SPSS Win 10.0 program. The results of this study are as follows : 1) Depending upon BMI, the obese subject was not, underweight subjects were 62.0%. 2) More than 40% of the subjects perceived their as over weight. While 62.1% of the women were underweight as defined by BMI. 3) The total mean score of anorexia was higher than bulimia nervosa. 4) The mean score for health locus of control and self-esteem was 35.97 and 32.60. 5) There were significant differences in eating disorder according to BMI, perceived view of appearance, body satisfaction, experienced weight-control, and predictors of weight control method. 6) An eating disorder showed significant negative correlation with health locus of control, and self-esteem. 7) Stepwise multiple regression analysis revealed that the most powerful predictor of eating disorder was BMI. Experienced weight control, health locus of control and self-esteem, body appearance have significant effects on eating disorder. These predictive variables of eating disorder explained 27% of variance. Finally, the result of this study showed that the eating behaviors among college women have been developed to the eating disorders or were many seriously disturbed. Therefore, to prevent the eating disorder, we should be provided health education related to eating behavior for the management of health in college women.
