BLANKET GROUP

n. a grouping which consists of a large category of people, objects, or events such that the distribution becomes quite diverse. Thus, results gathered from studying this group would neither be valid nor reliable. Any generalization formed would also be inconclusive.

BLANKET GROUP: "Any generalization derived from a blanket group would be of little value to science and psychology."
