the fallacies of generalizing PLEASE HELP!

posted by .

A quasi-scientific study was done to find some link to autism. In the study, it was found that children who had an autistic tendency were delivered after an average of about 30 hour labor. They all weighed an average of 10 pounds. The study was done in a particular region, and the subjects are all male children.
What are the fallacies of generalizing the findings of this study?
