Quick Reference

A defined population subgroup that research has shown to be more likely than others to suffer from a condition of interest. For instance, many epidemiological studies have shown that cigarette smokers have higher incidence and death rates from lung cancer than do nonsmokers; smokers therefore are a high risk group for lung cancer. The term should be used with tact and care to avoid stigmatizing or “blaming the victim.”
