The reasoning used in inductive generalization is based on empirical observations and the inferences we draw from such observations. As such, it is closely allied to the scientific method. It is also the method used in polls and surveys; reports of the results of these polls and surveys can heavily influence decision making in health professions and other areas of public opinion.
For the initial post, address the following:

What part do polls and surveys play in medical research?
Of what value are public opinion polls?

Where does the analogy break down?
The website links provided in the Required Resources are a good starting place for your research.
