Subgroup
A subset of the full study sample other than “a priori” treatment, comparison, or control groups. Researchers sometimes conduct analyses on subgroups when they want to examine whether the program or practice works better for one type of participant or another (for example, whether a juvenile prevention program works better for boys than girls, or whether a prison-based program works better for high-risk than low-risk offenders).
