Population group

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Population group is a demographic term that summarizes people according to individual statistical characteristics (e.g. age, gender, marital status, education, position in employment, religious affiliation, nationality).

The following population groups can be included :

Language group

Gender or age group

Social class

Territorial determined

According to activity



Since common interests and values as well as a feeling of togetherness among the characteristic bearers are possible, but not generally present, one speaks more precisely of population parts in sociology .
