[ Hasty generalization is a logical fallacy of faulty generalization by reaching an inductive generalization based on insufficient evidence ? essentially making a hasty conclusion without considering all of the variables. In statistics, it may involve basing broad conclusions regarding the statistics of a survey from a small sample group that fails to
sufficiently represent an entire population. ]
