Secondary analysis can serve many purposes, as well as being a valid approach in its own right. However, despite its widespread application, secondary analysis is often undervalued or perceived to be the preserve of only those interested in the re-use of large-scale survey data.
Highlighting both the theory and practice of secondary analysis and the use of secondary sources, this collection considers the nature of secondary analysis as a research tool; reflects on the definitional debates surrounding terms such as secondary analysis, data re-use and restudies; illustrates how secondary analysis is used in social science research; and finally reviews the practical, methodological and ethical aspects of secondary analysis.
Volume One: Using Secondary Sources and Secondary Analysis
Volume Two: Quantitative Approaches to Secondary Analysis
Volume Three: Qualitative Data and Research in Secondary Analysis
Volume Four: Ethical, Methodological and Practical Issues in Secondary Analysis
