Secondary Data Collection

Secondary data is data obtained from any source other that a user. Secondary data is usually obtained from organisational records, censuses and data collected for or from previous researches. Secondary data has its own advantages such as more time to focus on the other aspects of this research, and the amount of data obtainable is larger. Quality cannot be assured in secondary data and the researcher’s needs might not be met exactly. One of the major sources of secondary data for any research topic is the internet. Other sources of secondary data include government data, annual reports. These are the sources publically accessible for obtaining secondary data.
