How do I define "social category"?

Answer

A social category is comprised of a group of people who do not necessarily interact with each other but who share similar characteristics, such as the elderly, according to Cliff Notes. Age defines elderly people as a social category.

New Charter University offers another example of a social category: Asian Americans. Ethnic background and United States residence are two things they have in common, although they may not share other traits in common. Social categories are also formed on the basis of gender, religious inclination, regional location and social class. Social groups are comprised of people who interact with each other and share a common identity. A social aggregate is formed when people gather who neither interact nor share characteristics.
