Peer: n. a human(s) of (approximately the same age and/or rank) and/or ability as a different identified human(s)
Similar age and/or profession generally indicate a peer group. It is possible for some very young humans to be included in older human peer groups if they have shown precocious ability in some field of expertise.
Age classification makes for very generalized peer groups with differing abilities and the most important peer groups are the ones of humans demonstrating similar abilities such as in sports and in the professions or trades.
Peer pressure or pressure to conform exists not only in school but also outside of school where the peer group has a tendency to censor ideas and behavior which does not maintain peer group values.
