Before considering primary data collection, we encourage you to explore if an existing dataset can help answer your research question.  Using secondary data is a great idea because:

  1.  It is ethical – you are respecting participants’ time, ideas, and the stories they have shared with us that have helped create these datasets;
  2. It is cost effective – because you don’t have to collect the data yourself;
  3. It is convenient and time saving – leaving you with more time for data analysis, writing up and sharing the findings. Before pestering people for information, find out if secondary data exists.
