I think I understand your problem now, but I am afraid that I don't have much of an answer, other than that it reminds me of the ecological fallacy, see (Robinson 1950). Maybe others on this list have something more productive to offer. -- Maarten Robinson, W.S. (1950). "Ecological Correlations and the Behavior of Individuals".
