Thanks.

I thought Fokusgruppe was the right answer but then got confused when Eurodicautom threw up "Zielgruppe". Just goes to show that E. isn't always right :-)

Fokusgruppe


Explanation:
Fokusgruppe /focus group/ ist ein engerer Begriff als die Zielgruppe /target group/ innerhalb der Marktforschung.

Meinem Sprachgefuehl nach, ist die Fokusgruppe nur ein im Moment zu untersuchender Teil der Zielgruppe.
