"Biased information"

Think I first noticed this in the APA's web site (years ago), same title as below. Now it's everywhere (web search) - and bears repeating:

Homosexuality was thought to be a mental illness in the past because mental health professionals and society had biased information about homosexuality since most studies only involved lesbians and gay men in therapy. When researchers examined data about gay people who were not in therapy, the idea that homosexuality was a mental illness was found to be untrue.

I think this is, as Michelle would say, "autism-relevant".
