Does «chez les» work the same way as «parmi les»?

AVEC is certainly commonly used in place of PARMI; why is it wrong please?

to tell you the truth "avec les étudiants" sounds like a translation! the correct preposition is indeed "parmi", that you could replace by "chez", which in this case would not mean "at student's house" but "among".

I am sure I have heard AVEC in common use, so I just googled the various exact phrases (google france sites only) populaire avec 797K populaire auprès 410K populaire parmi 246K populaire chez 161K Donc, AVEC est populaire avec les Français
