Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is an illness that is characterized by debilitating fatigue. Few non‐treatment‐based epidemiological studies have been conducted in assessing rates of this disorder. Problems in conducting non‐community‐based prevalence studies are discussed. In addition, pilot data showing strategies to reach people afflicted with CFS are presented. It is argued that community‐based epidemiological efforts are needed in order to estimate prevalence rates of this disorder.
