question regarding target population?

the definition of target population:

"The target population for a survey is the entire set of units for which the survey data are to be used to make inferences. Thus, the target population defines those units for which the findings of the survey are meant to generalize."

what does this mean exactly?

 for instance we want to survey group X to find out what their preferences is in order to find out what group Z likes (because group Z looks up to group X and have similar preferences)

would this mean that group x here is the target population?
