Primary data – The most common methods of collecting primary data are conducting questionnaires, surveys, interviews, observations, case studies and focus groups, and examining documents and records. Data collection is the process of gathering information from different sources
Data collection technique
Questionnaire is of popular means of collecting data, but is difficult to design and often require many rewrites before an acceptable questionnaire is produced.
This technique is primarily used to gain an understanding of the underlying reason and motivations for people’s attitudes, preferences or behavior. The interview was done by asking general question. I encouraged the respondent to talk freely.
Secondary data – Refers to data that was collected by someone other than the user. Common sources of secondary data for social science include censuses, information collected by government departments, organizational records and data that was originally collected for other research purposes. Primary data, by contrast, are collected by the investigator conducting the research.
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 databases that would be unfeasible for any individual researcher to collect on their own.
