    Make generalization

    Based on the results that they got in the experiment they made a generalization. Can I say that ''They expanded the experimental results to the whole population.''

    Is there any good word for ''making generalization'' ?
     

    Thank you for your reply.

    I would probably say "They applied the results of the experiment..." or just maybe "They extended..."
