Secondary Data

Secondary data refers to data that has been collected by someone other than yourself.

Common sources of secondary data incude censuses, Statistics Canada Survey's,etc.

Secondary data analysis can save time that would otherwise be spent collecting data and, particularly in the case of quantitative data, can provide larger and higher-quality data sets that would be impractical for you to collect.
