Description:

Participants will learn about the key issues to consider when using secondary data analysis as a method. This introductory workshop will briefly cover the pros and cons of reusing data and the importance of learning about the origins of your data. Quantitative and qualitative secondary analysis will be discussed with examples and issues of context, sampling, plus ethics raised.

The session is more conceptual than many of our other workshops, which are more suited to those who want a more practical introduction to our data. The practical elements of the session will focus on exploring documentation and finding suitable data to support your research.
