Thesaurus entry for this meaning of peer grouphttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peer_group
A peer group is both a social group and a primary group of people. Peer group may be defined as a group of people who, through homophily, share similarities such as age, background, and social status. The members of this group are likely to influence the person’s beliefs and behaviour. Peer groups contain hierarchies and distinct patterns of behavior.
During adolescence, peer groups tend to face dramatic changes. Adolescents tend to spend more time with their peers and have less adult supervision. Adolescents’ communication shifts during this time as well. They prefer to talk to about school and their careers with their parents, and they enjoy talking about sex and other interpersonal relationships with their peers.[2
