  1. Note. Italicized analyses represent independent CFAs examining each subscale as a latent single factor. Perceived Parent Weight has 4 indicators, Concern about Child Weight has 3 indicators, Parental Responsibility has 3 indicators, Restriction has 8 indicators and Pressure to Eat has 4 indicators. AIC is a comparative fit index for two or more groups
